Proper functioning of the innate immune response depends on migration of circulating neutrophils into tissues at sites of infection and inflammation. Migration of highly motile, amoeboid cells such as neutrophils has significant physiological relevance, yet the traction forces that drive neutrophil motion in response to chemical cues are not well characterized. To better understand the relationship between chemotactic signals and the organization of forces in motile neutrophils, force… CONTINUE READING
