Abstract

A recent study shows that one of the two known Caenorhabditis elegans homologs of the mammalian integrin alpha subunit plays an essential role in the clearance of apoptotic cells - efferocytosis - during nematode development. These new findings reveal that integrins have evolutionarily conserved functions in efferocytosis in metazoans.
