Projection of a border cell cluster imaged with super-resolution Airyscan microscopy with DNA in blue and F-actin stained with phalloidin in orange. In their article, Mishra et al., show three new functions for myosin activity within and between border cells and propose a major revision to our understanding of the roles protrusions play in steering the migration .

Some discoveries produce a Eureka moment. The discovery of the HOX code, for example, revealed deep and surprising evolutionary conservation of the molecular mechanisms that pattern the bodies of animals as diverse as flies and humans. Other discoveries produce years or decades of head-scratching before their significance becomes evident. Mendel’s rules of inheritance come to mind. If you are grappling with perplexing results, take heart.
