Physics of adherent cells

Physics of adherent cells

One of the most unique physical features of cell adhesion to external surfaces is the active generation of mechanical force at the cell-material interface. This includes pulling forces generated by contractile polymer bundles and networks, and pushing forces generated by the polymerization of polymer networks. Topics covered includes: Physics of cell-matrix adhesions, Cell shape and forces, Active response of cells, Cell assemblies
