Light-Activated Chemotaxis

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Using light to control cellular processes is one of the attractive areas of research. Here, availability of different, light-responsive caged compounds has played a critical role. In this issue of Cell Chemical Biology, Hövelmann et al. (2016) give us an example of how to design and use caged lipids to guide chemotaxis at the single cell level.
