Mechanical property elaboration of engineered tissues is often assumed on the basis of gene and protein characterizations, rather than mechanical testing. However, we recently demonstrated that mechanical properties are not consistently correlated with matrix content and organization during embryonic tissue development. Based on this, mechanical properties… CONTINUE READING
