TL;DR: It is shown here that tissue-wide interactions force these cells to expand even when an otherwise sufficient amount of apical, active actomyosin is present, and models show that this behaviour is a general emergent property of actomyOSin networks [in a supracellular context, in accordance with experimental observations of actin reorganisation within stretching cells.
