Effective membrane tension: A long-range integrator of cellular dynamics

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Membrane tension has been proposed to mechanically couple processes along the cell's boundary. In this issue of Cell, De Belly et al. show that local protrusion or contraction elicit a global membrane tension increase within seconds, whereas tension perturbations that engage only the membrane remain localized.
