A phenomenological model for the evolution of shape transition of cells is considered. These transitions are determined by the emission of growth-factors, as well as mechanical interaction if cells are subjected to hard impingement. The originality of this model necessitates a formal treatment of the mathematical model, as well as the presentation of elementary cases in order to illustrate the consistence of the model. We will also show some small-scale relevant applications.
