Do rates of intercellular adhesion measure the cell affinities reflected in cell-sorting and tissue-spreading configurations?

Abstract

These experiments constitute the first experimental test of the hypothesis that the rates of adhesion between cells measure the intensities of adhesion or tissue affinities that could explain cell sorting and tissue spreading. For any set of relative adhesive intensities between cells in a heterogeneous population, a corresponding minimal free energy… (More)
