Recent studies of border cell migration during Drosophila oogenesis demonstrate that the EGFR and PDGFR signaling pathways act in a partially redundant manner to guide this process. Evidence presented shows that PDGFR signaling directs border cell migration via Rac and the Rac activator Mbc/CED-5/Dock180.
