Research Highlight

Lane change within a cell

Transport proteins switch the network

In order to better adjust to their environment, many animals can change their color. Scientists in Munich have now identified the mechanism behind this: an adapter protein allows to redirect pigment organelles between different networks within the cytoskeleton.
