Spreading of an anchorage-dependent cell on a selectively ligand-coated substrate mediated by receptor-ligand binding.


A continuum model was proposed to simulate a biological cell adhering to a substrate surface domain with selectively coated ligands. Cell adhesion was modeled by a traction-separation law depending on the receptor-ligand distance and their densities. It was found that the obtained spreading patterns are consistent with published experimental data and that… (More)
