Regulation of proliferation is required for normal development of tissues and prevention of cancer formation. Continuous control of proliferation leads to regular shaped cells forming characteristic tissue patterns. Epithelial tissues serve as a model system for studying tissue morphogenesis. Several groups have studied epithelial morphogenesis using topological or geometric models, with various assumptions. In this study, we have developed a method to simulate the dynamic process of… CONTINUE READING
