Additional file 5: Movie 4.


Higher magnification movie showing a photoconverted ENCC in the middle of the field of view, which is the daughter cell of a cell that was photoconverted when it was undergoing mitosis; the nucleus is red and the cytoplasm is orange because of the presence of newly synthesized (green) protein after cell division. This ENCC, and other ENCCs in the field of view at the fronts of chains, extended filopodia and lamellopodia in a variety of directions. After the red ENCC encountered another chain, a number of processes adhered to the chain and the cell then joined the chain. The movement between images is due to spontaneous contractions of the developing external muscle. Images were captured every 2.5 minutes for five hours using a X40 objective lens for two hours. Caudal is to the right.
