Modeling the mechanosensitivity of fast-crawling cells on cyclically stretched substrates

Modeling the mechanosensitivity of fast-crawling cells on cyclically stretched substrates
John J. Molina, Ryoichi Yamamoto
We use a phase-field model to study the mechanosensitive response of fast-crawling cells over cyclically stretched substrates. We show that an asymmetry in the adhesion dynamics during loading/unloading can be used to selectively align the cells.
