Morphogenesis: Shaping Tissues through Extracellular Force Gradients.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Organ sculpting requires directed physical force generation. Force imbalances are primarily thought to arise from within cells. A new study, however, demonstrates that an extracellular-matrix-based stiffness gradient in the Drosophila egg chamber instructs tissue elongation.
