Lee et al. evaluate capabilities of homeodomain proteins (HPs) for transfer between cells. They find that intercellular transfer is a general but cell-context-sensitive property of HP. Intercellular HP transfer can be an unconventional way for the cells to communicate with neighboring cells that associate structurally and functionally.
