Endothelial Tip Cell Finds Its Way with Piezo1

Like axon guidance, the tuning of vascular tip cells during angiogenesis is an intriguing but puzzling developmental process. A new study in zebrafish (Liu et al., 2020) now demonstrates a critical role of the Piezo1 mechanosensitive ion channel in guiding vascular tip cells in pathfinding.
