Mechanical interactions between cells and their surrounding extracellular matrix (ECM) play an important role in regulating many cellular functions, such as migration, proliferation and differentiation. Cells adhere to a substrate through an integrated process that involves binding and clustering of integrins to ECM ligands, actin polymerizationdriven plasma membrane extension, and contraction of the actomyosin cytoskeleton which transmits traction forces to the substrate through sites of… CONTINUE READING
