Milinkovitch MC. Dev Cell 2021 Mar;56(6):719-721. S1534-5807(21)00200-8. 10.1016/j.devcel.2021.03.003.

In this issue of Developmental Cell, Chuyen et al. (2021) suggest that the Scf/Kit pathway controls mutual repulsion of multiciliated cells and their affinity for epidermal cell junctions through soluble and membrane-associated Scf ligands, respectively. Effective self-organizational patterning emerges at the mesoscopic scale as a small set of effective behaviors.
