SCAR/WAVE proteins are central regulators of cell motility that coordinate actin reorganization through activation of the Arp2/3 complex. Their activity is controlled by a large complex with four other members. A new study contradicts earlier work by suggesting that the entire complex is required for SCAR/WAVE activity at the leading edge.
