Cell movement is a complex and dynamic process that causes changes in cell morphology by reorganizing the actin cytoskeleton and modulating cell adhesions. For directional cell migration, cells must continuously receive the polarized environmental signals and transmit the polarized intracellular signals from a fixed direction, which orient protrusion of the… CONTINUE READING
