Respiratory Research is recruiting two new Editors-in-Chief.
Induced and spontaneous sputum sampling are techniques used to study lung inflammation and microbes and are less invasive alternatives to a bronchoscopy. But can choice between these two sampling techniques impact researchers’ conclusions when examining a patient’s lungs? Solveig Tangedal, lead author of new research published in Respiratory Research exploring this issue, tells us more.

The dynamic actin cytoskeleton spatially and temporally regulates protrusion, adhesions, contraction, and retraction from the cell front to the rear. Recent studies suggest that intermediate filaments undergo reorganization during migration, which coordinates focal adhesion dynamics, cell contraction, and nucleus rigidity. This review recapitulates our current knowledge how the three cytoskeletal systems spatially and temporally modulate the migratory properties of cells.
