Topography of cell traces studied by atomic force microscopy

Abstract

Migrating adherent cells release material onto artificial substrates like glass and silicon while moving. Traces of mouse fibroblasts (L929) have been visualised by atomic force microscopy (AFM). “Non-contact” mode AFM in a liquid environment can extract topographic information from these traces. This dynamic mode allows the study of these soft structures… (More)
