Abstract

Cellular invasion through protein matrices is a critical process during epithelial-mesenchymal transitions. A recent study of Caenorhabditis elegans vulval development reports a novel invasive mechanism in which cells coordinate spatially restricted degradation and sliding of a basement membrane during cellular ingression and tissue formation.
