Sending out a cellular SOS: How cells signal that it's time to migrate

July 5, 2018

New research from the Parent lab reveals the mechanism that the model organism Dictyostelium discoideum uses to signal to neighboring cells when it’s time to move. The findings, published in the Journal of Cell Biology, offer insights into how cells communicate to coordinate migration in response to chemical cues, such as injuries or infections.
