    The Reissner fiber under tension in vivo shows dynamic interaction with ciliated cells contacting the cerebrospinal fluid

    Celine Bellegarda, Guillaume Zavard ... Claire Wyart
    Experimental manipulations and a mechanical model of the fiber reveal that the Reissner fiber is under heterogenous tension in vivo, and interacts with the motile cilia of diverse cells contacting the cerebrospinal fluid.

    A mechanosensing mechanism controls plasma membrane shape homeostasis at the nanoscale

    Xarxa Quiroga, Nikhil Walani ... Pere Roca-Cusachs
    Cell stretch release generates plasma membrane (PM) evaginations of ≈100 nm, triggering a local event of actin polymerization that flattens and recovers PM shape.
