Transmigrating cells often need to deform cell body and nucleus to pass through micrometer-sized pores in extracellular matrix scaffolds. Furthermore, chemoattractive signals typically guide transmigration, but the precise interplay between mechanical constraints and signaling mechanisms during 3D matrix invasion is incompletely understood and may differ(More)
In vivo, cells are exposed to mechanical forces in many different ways. These forces can strongly influence cell functions or may even lead to diseases. Through their sensing machinery, cells are able to perceive the physical information of the extracellular matrix and translate it into biochemical signals resulting in cellular responses. Here, by virtue of(More)
