Combining AFM and acoustic probes to reveal changes in the elastic stiffness tensor of living cells.

Abstract

Knowledge of how the elastic stiffness of a cell affects its communication with its environment is of fundamental importance for the understanding of tissue integrity in health and disease. For stiffness measurements, it has been customary to quote a single parameter quantity, e.g., Young's modulus, rather than the minimum of two terms of the stiffness… (More)
