Abstract

Fritz-Laylin et al. (2017. J. Cell Biol. https ://doi .org /10 .1083 /jcb .201701074) take advantage of the deep knowledge of mechanisms of actin-based motility and a growing number of sequenced genomes across the tree of life to gain insight into the machinery needed for pseudopod-based amoeboid motility and how it evolved.
