biosights: November 26, 2012 - Global sourcing for cytokinetic ring assembly

submitted by: JCB
Fission yeast are thought to assemble their cytokinetic actomyosin rings from actin filaments nucleated at myosin-containing nodes around the cell equator. Using an improved actin-binding probe, Huang et al. find that actin cables are nucleated all over the cortex of mitotic fission yeast and are transported to the division site for incorporation into the contractile ring. This biosights episode presents the paper by Huang et al. from the November 26, 2012, issue of The Journal of Cell...

biosights: October 29, 2012 - A stiff test for collectively migrating cells

submitted by: JCB
The mechanical properties of the extracellular matrix are known to regulate the migration of single cells, but whether substrate stiffness also affects collective cell migration is unclear. Ng et al. reveal that epithelial sheets move faster on stiffer matrices due to increased myosin contractility and mechanical coupling through cell-cell adhesions. This biosights episode presents the paper by Ng et al. from the October 29, 2012, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an...
