Surfing the actomyosin wave: Polarization of the C. elegans zygote

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Many cell types rely on asymmetrically localized PAR proteins to become polarized. New evidence reveals that cortical flows powered by actomyosin contractions can mobilize PAR complexes to create distinct cortical domains.
