This study aims at quantifying the cellular mechanical properties based on a partitioning of the cytoskeleton in a cortical and a cytosolic compartments. The mechanical response of epithelial cells obtained by magnetocytometry - a micromanipulation technique which uses twisted ferromagnetic beads specifically linked to integrin receptors - was purposely analysed using a series of two Voigt bodies. Results showed that the cortical cytoskeleton has a faster response ( approximately 1 s) than the… CONTINUE READING
