Extension of the lamella at the front edge is compensated by a shortening at the cell body-Iamella-transition region keeping lamella size approximately constant. This "shortening" is thought to result from a contraction of fibrils connecting cell body and lamella ("a" in Fig. 1). Contraction is supposed to be followed by disassembly of f-actin to oligomeric actin. 4. CRITICAL TESTING OF THE HYPOTHESIS Potent tests for each hypothesis on cell locomotion are the questions whether the processes, which are thought to be involved, can be controlled by well known events and whether continuity of locomotion and self organization of the structural elements are explained.
Also in epidermis cells fibres develop in the lamella, when the cell body adheres to other cells, being prevented from following the lamella. 6. CONCLUSION Locomotion is a consequence of local instability of cell shape, therefore shape and locomotion are mutually interrelated. The considerations presented above favour a generalized model of cell locomotion, based on the analysis of shape of migrating cells. The model can he adapted to different types of cytoskeleton organization. Force generation by the cortical actomyosin meshwork and determination of direction by a local weakening of cytoplasm have been discussed by several authors [for instance 1,2,7,23, 26,27], the existence of a hydrostatic pressure, however, has not been considered in full consequence.
2) Since in our model mechanical constraints are canalizing the transformation, the arrangement of bones in primitive tetrapod limbs should be identical even if the limbs derived from fins with differing arrangements of bones. Although arguments suggesting a diphyletic descent of tetrapods were put forward repeatedly we shall not consider this case here. Even if we are assuming monophyly of tetrapods the prediction is confirmed. The patterns of the pectoral and the pelvic limbs of tetrapods are virtually identical.
