Cell shape: Taking the heat.
R470 - R472.
Preservation of cell architecture under physically stressful conditions is a basic requirement for many biological processes and is critical for mechanosensory systems built to translate subtle changes in cell shape into changes in organism behaviour. A new study reveals how an extracellular protein -Spam-helps mechanosensory organs in the fruit fly to withstand the effects of the water loss that accompanies heat shock.
