Cells form an extensive network of actin-rich protrusions to move through tissues, including veil-like lamellipodia and finger-like filopodia (Mattila and Lappalainen, 2008; Bisi et al., 2013; Krause and Gautreau, 2014; Jacquemet et al., 2015). Filopodia play key roles throughout embryonic development, including in the developing nervous system. Filopodia mediate the sensing of attractant and repellent guidance cues by growth cones (Zheng et al., 1996; McConnell et al., 2016) and the guidance…

A requirement for filopodia extension toward Slit during Robo-mediated axon repulsion
Gradients of the repulsive guidance factor Slit induce filopodia formation and elongation toward the cue and this activity is required for axonal repulsion and is driven by ligand-induced binding of Ena/VASP proteins to the Robo receptor.
CellGeo: A computational platform for the analysis of shape changes in cells with complex geometries
The open source MATLAB application CellGeo is a user-friendly computational platform that allows simultaneous, automated tracking and analysis of dynamic changes in cell shape, including protrusions
Cytoplasmic polyadenylation and cytoplasmic polyadenylation element-dependent mRNA regulation are involved in Xenopus retinal axon development
Results indicate that cytoplasmic polyadenylation and CPE-mediated translational regulation are involved in retinal axon development, but that CPEB1 may not be the key regulator of polyadenyation in the developing retina.
FiloQuant reveals increased filopodia density during DCIS progression
In cellular models of breast ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), a link between filopodia formation at the cell-matrix interface, during collective invasion and in 3D tumour spheroids is revealed, with the previously reported local invasive potential of these breast cancer models in vivo.
Fiji: an open-source platform for biological-image analysis
Fiji is a distribution of the popular open-source software ImageJ focused on biological-image analysis that facilitates the transformation of new algorithms into ImageJ plugins that can be shared with end users through an integrated update system.
Self-Assembly of Filopodia-Like Structures on Supported Lipid Bilayers
It is proposed that Filopodia form via clustering of Arp2/3 complex activators, self-assembly of filopodial tip complexes on the membrane, and outgrowth of actin bundles.
Open source software for quantification of cell migration, protrusions, and fluorescence intensities
ADAPT is an ImageJ plug-in that can be used for rapid whole-cell analysis of time-lapse videos, thereby providing data on cell morphology, membrane velocity, and temporal changes in any fluorescent
FiloDetect: automatic detection of filopodia from fluorescence microscopy images
FiloDetect provides accurate and objective quantification of filopodia in microscopy images, and will enable large scale comparative studies to assess the effects of different genetic and chemical perturbations on filopadia production in different cell types, including cancer cell lines.
Mechanism of filopodia initiation by reorganization of a dendritic network
A convergent elongation model of filopodia initiation is proposed, stipulating that filaments within the lamellipodial dendritic network acquire privileged status by binding a set of molecules (including VASP) to their barbed ends, which protect them from capping and mediate association of barbed Ends with each other.
