    Pathology Department, Massachusetts General Hospital, Charlestown, MA, USA
    Cell Adh Migr 4:353-7. 2010
    ..Intratubular migration leads to significant changes in kidney morphology. This novel process provides a powerful in vivo model for further exploration of the mechanisms underlying mechanotransduction and collective migration...
