Hatte G, Prigent C, Tassan J. Tight junctions negatively regulate mechanical forces applied to adherens junctions in vertebrate epithelial tissue. J Cell Sci. 2018;131: pubmed publisher
..Our results reveal that tight junctions regulate mechanical tension applied to adherens junctions, which in turn impacts cytokinesis.This article has an associated First Person interview with the first author of the paper. ..
