Mechanical Characterization of Microengineered Epithelial Cysts by Using Atomic Force Microscopy.

Abstract

Most organs contain interconnected tubular tissues that are one-cell-thick, polarized epithelial monolayers enclosing a fluid-filled lumen. Such tissue organization plays crucial roles in developmental and normal physiology, and the proper functioning of these tissues depends on their regulation by complex biochemical perturbations and equally important… (More)
