Video #1: Adhesion defects in adherens junction (armadillo) mutant

Adhesion defects in adherens junction (armadillo) mutantContractile activity tears tissue apart when adherens junctions are disrupted, demonstrating critical role for adherens junctions in integrating contractile forces across the tissue. Video / Adam Martin

Video #2: Adhesion defects after cytochalasin D injection

Adhesion defects after cytochalasin D injectionLimiting actin polymerization with the drug Cytochalasin D disrupts stable connections between cells, suggesting that robust actin filament assembly is critical to maintain stable attachments between cells. Video / Mike Tworoger
