We present a reconstruction algorithm that resolves cellular tractions in diffraction-limited nascent adhesions (NAs). The enabling method is the introduction of sparsity regularization to the solution of the inverse problem, which suppresses noise without underestimating traction magnitude. We show that NAs transmit a distinguishable amount of traction and(More)
Symmetry-breaking polarization enables functional plasticity of cells and tissues and is yet not well understood. Here we show that epithelial cells, hard-wired to maintain a static morphology and to preserve tissue organization, can spontaneously switch to a migratory polarized phenotype upon relaxation of the actomyosin cytoskeleton. We find that(More)
