Linking IgSF-mediated cell adhesion with Arp2/3-based actin polymerization during Drosophila myoblast fusion

The somatic musculature of Drosophila is analogous to vertebrate skeletal muscles and is generated by the fusion of mononucleate myoblasts. Muscle fusion in Drosophila involves two distinct cell populations, founder cells (FCs) and fusion-competent myoblasts (FCMs). The recognition and adhesion of b...
