Developmental biology: tension at the border

Curr Biol. 2009 Dec 1;19(22):R1028-30. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2009.10.030.


A combination of biophysical measurements and computer simulation shows that a localised increase in cell bond tension prevents cell mixing at the anterior-posterior compartment boundary of Drosophila wing imaginal discs.
