  6. [Illinois] CMMB IGERT & M-CNTC Annual Symposium: Cell Mechanosensitivity and Metastasis

    06 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Xin Tang

    Human colon carcinoma (HCT-8) cells show a stable transition from low to high metastatic state when cultured on appropriately soft substrates (21 kPa). Initially epithelial (E) in nature, the HCT-8 cells become rounded (R) after seven days of culture on soft substrate. R cells show a number of...

  7. [Illinois] CMMB IGERT & M-CNTC Annual Symposium: Alpha-Catenin in Cadherin Mechanotransduction

    06 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Hamid Tabdili

    Differential adhesion between cadherin subtypes expressed on cell surfaces is postulated to direct cell segregation during tissue morphogenesis. The studies described here used magnetic twisting cytometry and traction force microscopy to test the impact of cadherin binding selectivity on...

  8. [Illinois] CMMB IGERT & M-CNTC Annual Symposium: Detection of Mass, Growth Rate, and Stiffness of Single Adherent Cells

    06 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Elise Corbin

    Recently, improved MEMS resonator sensors were developed at Illinois. These can be used to directly measure the biophysical properties, mass, and growth rate of single adherent cells. Decoupling the relationship between the cell's dynamics and the apparent mass reported by the sensor is vital....
