    A flagellate-to-amoeboid switch in the closest living relatives of animals

    Thibaut Brunet et al.
    The closest living relatives of animals, the choanoflagellates, switch from a flagellate to an amoeboid phenotype under confinement.

    ADF and cofilin-1 collaborate to promote cortical actin flow and the leader bleb-based migration of confined cells

    Maria F Ullo, Jeremy S Logue
    Fast amoeboid migrating cells require both cofilin-1 and ADF for fast actin turnover at 'leader bleb' necks.

    Actin-based protrusions of migrating neutrophils are intrinsically lamellar and facilitate direction changes

    Lillian K Fritz-Laylin et al.
    Neutrophil pseudopods are composed of multiple sheets that are inherently flat, protrude in three dimensions, and whose assembly correlates with cell turning.

    Plasticity of cell migration resulting from mechanochemical coupling

    Yuansheng Cao et al.
    Computational and experimental studies show that different migration modes of eukaryotic cells are the result of the interplay between signaling waves and cell mechanics.

    Ingression-type cell migration drives vegetal endoderm internalisation in the Xenopus gastrula

    Jason WH Wen, Rudolf Winklbauer
    The cellular behaviours that underlie the internalization of the multilayered endoderm anlage in Xenopus laevis link the ancestral mode of vertebrate gastrulation to common, epithelial-based mechanisms of gastrulation in non-vertebrate animals.

    An analysis toolbox to explore mesenchymal migration heterogeneity reveals adaptive switching between distinct modes

    Hamdah Shafqat-Abbasi et al.
    “Discontinuous” and “Continuous” migration modes are divergent mesenchymal migration strategies that arise spontaneously in parallel in an equilibrium modulated by cell-matrix attachment and actomyosin contractility.

    Subventricular zone/white matter microglia reconstitute the empty adult microglial niche in a dynamic wave

    Lindsay A Hohsfield et al.
    In an empty microglial niche, repopulating microglia arise from subventricular zone and white matter-associated areas without contributions from the bone marrow to fill the mouse brain via a spreading wave.

    Erk regulation of actin capping and bundling by Eps8 promotes cortex tension and leader bleb-based migration

    Jeremy S Logue et al.
    Eps8, a specific effector of oncogenic signaling, organizes the cortical actin cytoskeleton of cancer cells to promote mechanical properties that favor a newly identified mode of confined, adhesion-independent cell migration.

    Complex transcriptional regulation and independent evolution of fungal-like traits in a relative of animals

    Alex de Mendoza et al.
    Functional genomics reveal complex genome regulation during the coenocytic development of the ichthyosporean Creolimax fragrantissima, a protist closely related to animals.

    Evolution of multicellularity by collective integration of spatial information

    Enrico Sandro Colizzi et al.
    Selection for undifferentiated multicellularity emerges in an evolutionary cell-based model because a collective of cells performs chemotaxis better than single cells in a noisy environment.
