To understand how cells orient themselves, Weizmann Institute researchers turned to a model from physics

Cytoskeletal fibers (green) and adhesion sites (orange) grow when the Arp2/3 complex is present in its hybrid version (right) compared with the regular, seven-subunit version (left). When Arp2/3 is absent altogether, the fibers and the adhesion sites deteriorate (center)

A seven-unit structure that helps a cell move can rearrange to help anchor it in place
