Dictyostelium cells migrate in an orderly head-to-tail arrangement. They do this by leaving a trail of vesicles (thought to contain chemoattractant) for their fellow cells to follow. This biosights episode presents a paper by Kriebel et al. in the Journal of Cell Biology, and includes excerpts from an interview with senior author Carole Parent. Produced by Justin Paul and Ruth Williams.
