Mesenchymal cell migration is important for embryogenesis and tissue regeneration. In addition, it has been implicated in pathological conditions such as the dissemination of cancer cells. A characteristic of mesenchymal-migrating cells is the presence of actin stress fibres, which are thought to mediate myosin II-based contractility in close cooperation with associated focal adhesions. Myosin II-based contractility regulates various cellular activities, which occur in a spatial and temporal… CONTINUE READING
