Many biological processes are mechanically controlled. For example, when a cell migrates, the extracellular matrix (ECM) controls its shape, dynamics and adhesion as a response to the mechanical stress of the environment. Focal adhesions (FAs) are dynamic structures which connect the actomyosin cytoskeleton with the extracellular matrix. Up to date, several… CONTINUE READING
