Continuous F-actin polymerization at the leading edge drives forward movement and adhesion, while the uropod undergoes repeated cycles of substrate attachment, release, and retraction. Thus, this coordinated adhesion and detachment, along with actin-mediated propulsion, allows T cells to ‘‘crawl’’ or ‘‘chemotax’’ along blood vessel walls and to transmigrate through vascular endothelium into surrounding tissues.

Another actin-nucleating protein that may regulate migration is the RHO-activated formin, mDIA1. , 2003). , 2007). drf1À/À T cells display severe defects in chemotaxis, F-actin polymerization, and polarization in response to chemokines in vitro. , 2007). , 2007). , 2007). , 2007). , 2007). Also downstream of RHOA, the serine/threonine kinase, ROCK, has been proposed to regulate actomyosin activity. , 2002). , 2002). , 2003). This suggests that while ROCK is likely required for uropod maintenance through effects on myosin, it is not responsible for ERM-mediated cytoskeletal anchoring of cellular receptors.
Taken together, these data delineate a role for WAVE2–ARP2/3 in both the affinity maturation of integrins (through interaction with vinculin and talin) as wells as integrin avidity (integrin clustering) at the IS. Although it is currently unclear how WAVE2–ARP2/3 and actin regulate integrin clustering at the IS, recent studies indicate that T cells suppressed for WAVE2, ARP2/3 or treated with F-actin disrupting agents show diminished RAP1 activation (Nolz and Billadeau, unpublished observation).
