    Abstract

    During cell migration, actin retrograde flow is counteracted by integrin-mediated adhesion to the underlying matrix, providing traction for forward movement. But in the absence of this 'clutch' mechanism, some types of cells adapt their actin polymerization to maintain similar migration speeds.
