Moving in concert: How lateral line primordium cells coordinate to migrate

Posted by , on 21 September 2019

Written by Tugba Colak-Champollion Story behind our recent paper in Current Biology “Cadherin-Mediated Cell Coupling Coordinates Chemokine Sensing across Collectively Migrating Cells” (Tugba Colak-Champollion, Ling Lan, Alisha R. Jadhav, Naoya ...

Pitx2c sets the stage for gastrulation

Posted by , on 23 August 2018

In our recently published paper https://elifesciences.org/articles/34880, we report that the transcription factor Pitx2c has an unexpected role during gastrulation, where it acts cell non-autonomously to promote mesendodermal cell migration required ...

Posted by , on 18 January 2018

Vertebrate brain development is characterised by cell migration, as neurons are often born far from where they need to end up. Migration is regulated by guidance cues and their receptors, ...

The protein that keeps cells static is found to play a key role in cell movement

Posted by , on 14 August 2015

The protein E-Cadherin (E-Cad) is a kind of adhesive that keeps cells tightly bound together, thus favouring the organisation of tissues and organs. Scientists at the Institute for Research in ...

Electrifying news for embryologists

Posted by , on 17 June 2014

Electroporation: an efficient technique for embryologists During embryonic development, the specification of different cell types giving rise to the future organs involves a precise spatiotemporal regulation of cell proliferation, migration, ...

A study using Drosophila flies reveals new regulatory mechanisms of cell migration

Posted by , on 21 March 2014

A study by Sofia J. Araújo, a Ramón y Cajal researcher with the Morphogenesis in Drosophila lab at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB), elucidates the genetic regulation of ...
