Making sure the unwanted cell is expelled, Human Frontier Science Program
Epithelial cells have a natural tendency to close gaps and this feature plays a crucial role in many biological processes such as embryological development, wound healing and apoptotic events. In the latter, the removal of cells in excess through extrusion is important to prevent accumulation of cells and tumor formation.View More
