Signaling output is optimized through complex feedback loops ultimately leading to efficient cell motility. Artist Jun Cen ( cenjun.com ) depicts a small diver exploring confined migration, which is symbolized by the large size and tangled arms of the octopus trying to squeeze into the cave.

Cancer cells use two pathways to sense and move in tight quarters

Like a bicycle messenger weaving through busy city streets, cancer cells are skilled at maneuvering through microenvironments. Researchers know they use complex signally pathways to move through and sense their surroundings, but exactly how these … more
