Molecular motors

​​​​​​​Researchers at the Cancer Biology and Infection laboratory are studying the repair mechanisms implemented at the level of injury they created in a monolayer of endothelial cells in culture. They observed that the cells located at the p​eriphery of these lesions emitted filopodia on which motors proteins where traveling, c​​arrying other proteins in order to interact with the cells located on the other side of the lesion. This study identifies that motor protein and sheds new light on the mechanisms underlying the remodeling, the tissue repair and the angiogenesis.​​
