During development, proliferating cells are organized into compartments with boundaries across which cells fail to intermix. Compartment boundaries are often attributed to differential cell-cell adhesion between separate compartments. However, tension generated by actomyosin cables at boundaries can also function as a barrier that prevents cell mixing.
