Title Hippo kinases maintain polarity during directional cell migration in Caenorhabditis elegans.
Journal EMBO J.
Abstract phosphorylation impedes actin assembly in migrating cells. Intriguingly, Hippo kinases are excluded from the leading edge in wild-type cells, while MIG-2 loss induces uniform distribution of Hippo kinases. We provide evidence that Hippo kinases inhibit RhoG activity locally and are in turn restricted to the cell body by RhoG-mediated polarization. Therefore, we propose that the Hippo-RhoG feedback regulation maintains cell polarity during directional cell motility.
