Cell Movement

Cell Movement involves cellular movement which covers cellular locomotion and the mechanism behind the same. Cell movement is a complex phenomenon primarily driven by the actin network beneath the cell membrane, and can be divided into three general components: protrusion of the leading edge of the cell, adhesion of the leading edge and adhesion at the cell body and rear, and cytoskeletal contraction to pull the cell forward. Each of these steps is driven by physical forces generated by unique segments of the cytoskeleton. This review examines the specific physics underlying these phases of cell movement and the origins of the forces that drive locomotion. There are various types of cell movements such as amoeboid movement, ciliary, gliding motility, flagella, mechanotaxis, chemotaxis etc. Cell Biology: Research & Therapy finds scope under cell movements and includes submissions on the recent development and discoveries in the field of cell movements and related aspects. It accepts submissions on cell and related fields across the globe as research, review, case reports, commentary or mini review etc. Authors can submit their valuable contribution under open access or subscription mode of publication as per the requirement and feasibility.
