Understanding the rolling and adhesion behavior of a cell on the vascular surface under viscous shear flow is important to better understand many biological processes. One of the important examples is the adhesion of the leukocytes onto sites of an inflammation. Recently, researchers have started to investigate the effects of surface rigidity on the cell rolling and adhesion. Inspired by recent studies, we employed Adhesive dynamics to investigate effects of substrate rigidity on a rolling cell…

Rolling adhesion of leukocytes on soft substrates: Does substrate stiffness matter?

On Stability of Specific Adhesion of Particles to Membranes in Simple Shear Flow.

TLDR
A phase-plane method is used, first developed by Hammer and Lauffenburger, to analyze the stability of specific adhesion of a spherical particle to a compliant interface layer and concludes that the local deformation of the flexible interface inhibits the stableAdhesion of the particle.

The state diagram for cell adhesion under flow: leukocyte rolling and firm adhesion.

TLDR
It is found that the unstressed dissociation rate, k(r)(o), and the bond interaction length, gamma, are the most important molecular properties controlling the dynamics of adhesion.

A 3-D computational model predicts that cell deformation affects selectin-mediated leukocyte rolling.

TLDR
A three-dimensional computational model based on the immersed boundary method to predict receptor-mediated rolling of deformable cells in shear flow coupled to a Monte Carlo method simulating the stochastic receptor-ligand interactions successfully explains the stable leukocyte rolling at a wide range of shear rates over that of rigid microspheres.

Stiff substrates enhance monocytic cell capture through E-selectin but not P-selectin.

TLDR
The results suggest that vascular stiffening could promote leukocyte adhesion to vessel walls where E- Selectin is expressed, but may have less of an effect when P-selectin is also present.

Models for the specific adhesion of cells to cells.

TLDR
The force required to separate two cells is shown to be greater than the expected electrical forces between cells, and of the same order of magnitude as the forces required to pull gangliosides and perhaps some integral membrane proteins out of the cell membrane.

Tyrosine replacement in P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 affects distinct kinetic and mechanical properties of bonds with P- and L-selectin.

TLDR
It is revealed that L-selectin dissociated faster from single-Tyr than wild-type PSGL-1 at higher shear but not at lower shear, and tyrosine replacements in PS GL-1 affect distinct kinetic and mechanical properties of bonds with P- and L- selectin.

Enhancing Shear Thickening

A cornstarch suspension is the quintessential particulate system that exhibits shear thickening. By adding large non-Brownian spheres to a cornstarch suspension, we show that shear thickening can be
