Physics of Adherent Cells by Ulrich S. Schwarz, Samuel S. Safran

Small book cover: Physics of Adherent Cells

Physics of Adherent Cells
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 58

Description:
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. Here a review is given of recent progress in our understanding of the role of forces in cell adhesion from the viewpoint of theoretical soft matter physics and in close relation to the relevant experiments.
