Online Cover This week features a Research Article that shows that human naïve CD4+ T cells have stiffer cytoskeletons than those of their effector cell counterparts. Because of their increased flexibility, effector cells form more intimate contacts with antigen-presenting cells (APCs). The image shows a range of stiff T cells (left) and more flexible T cells (right). Above these is a rendering of multiple T cells enaging an APC.
