Cell Contractility Facilitates Alignment of Cells and Tissues to Static Uniaxial Stretch.

Abstract

During animal development and homeostasis, the structure of tissues, including muscles, blood vessels, and connective tissues, adapts to mechanical strains in the extracellular matrix (ECM). These strains originate from the differential growth of tissues or forces due to muscle contraction or gravity. Here we show using a computational model that by… (More)
