Intracellular fluid flow in rapidly moving cells

Intracellular fluid flow in rapidly moving cells Fluid flow towards the leading edge has been suggested to have a role in cell motility, but the existence of fluid flow had not been demonstrated directly. Insertion of quantum dots into the lamellipodia of fish keratinocytes now reveals a forward-directed fluid flow that is dependent on myosin II activity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Cell Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

Fluid flow towards the leading edge has been suggested to have a role in cell motility, but the existence of fluid flow had not been demonstrated directly. Insertion of quantum dots into the lamellipodia of fish keratinocytes now reveals a forward-directed fluid flow that is dependent on myosin II activity.
