    Fibroblastic reticular cell-derived lysophosphatidic acid regulates confined intranodal T-cell motility

    Akira Takeda et al.
    A lipid mediator lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) derived from fibroblastic reticular cells regulates T-cell movement through the densely packed reticular network in lymph nodes in a manner dependent on the LPA receptor LPA2-ROCK-myosin II.

    Kinetochore-independent chromosome segregation driven by lateral microtubule bundles

    Christina C Muscat et al.
    Chromosomes in C. elegans female reproductive cells segregate through motor-driven movement along lateral microtubule bundles.

    Environmental deformations dynamically shift the grid cell spatial metric

    Alexandra T Keinath et al.
    When a familiar environment is reshaped, the grid cell spatial code is dynamically anchored to recently encountered boundaries and changes throughout exploration with the specific movement history of the navigator.

    The structure and organization of lanceolate mechanosensory complexes at mouse hair follicles

    Lishi Li, David D Ginty
    Close examination of lanceolate mechanosensory complexes has revealed clues about the ways that sensory nerves detect the movement of hairs and shown than terminal Schwann cells are needed to maintain and regenerate these intricate structures.

    Organ sculpting by patterned extracellular matrix stiffness

    Justin Crest et al.
    Direct measurement of finely patterned mechanical properties in a native basement membrane demonstrate how force asymmetries arising from this extracellular matrix, rather than from cells, can precisely sculpt a tissue.

    Spatial signals link exit from mitosis to spindle position

    Jill Elaine Falk et al.
    In yeast, exit from mitosis is triggered by the movement of one spindle pole body out of the mother cell into the bud, the future daughter cell.

    Tracking transcription factor mobility and interaction in Arabidopsis roots with fluorescence correlation spectroscopy

    Natalie M Clark et al.
    The mechanistic basis of molecular movement and interactions within plant root cells can be quantified using scanning fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.

    Shear-induced damped oscillations in an epithelium depend on actomyosin contraction and E-cadherin cell adhesion

    Ehsan Sadeghipour et al.
    Cell movement toward and away from the midline of an epithelium over tens of hours are caused by spontaneous or externally-applied shear forces to eliminate force imbalances within the tissue.

    Gastrulation: May the force be with you

    Shinuo Weng, John B Wallingford
    Understanding the coordination of the forces generated in embryos by two processes, convergent extension and convergent thickening, is key to understanding how a hollow sphere of cells develops into an elongated embryo.

    Intracellular Diffusion: How bacteria keep proteins moving

    Conrad W Mullineaux
    Bacteria contain large numbers of negatively-charged proteins to avoid the electrostatic interactions with ribosomes that would dramatically reduce protein diffusion.
