WASP and WAVE Team Up at the Leading Edge.


Arp2/3-dependent branched actin networks drive membrane protrusions, with WAVE being recognized as the critical Arp2/3 activator in this process. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Zhu et al. (2016) demonstrate that WASP, an Arp2/3 activator mostly involved in endocytosis, collaborates with WAVE to promote migration of neuroblasts in Caenorhabditis elegans.
