Several chapters in the proceedings have amply demonstrated that the biochemistry and structural biology of the leading lamella are complicated [Soll, 1988; Hartwig and Yin, 1988; Condeelis, et al., 19881. Therefore, I will approach the phenomenon of cell locomotion by posing two questions about the physics of this organelle: What are the mechanical forces that drive cell protrusion? How are the chemical and physical events coordinated? Too little is known to answer these questions definitively… CONTINUE READING
