A Forster Resonance Energy Transfer-based tension, or FRET, the sensor was used to monitor the force dynamics during cell movement. The sensor, equipped with FRET molecules, acts like a spring to measure the tiny amount of force that is generated by the cancer cell through focal adhesion and that drives the cell to move.
We find no regionalization of the inner parts of the stolons according to the directions of cell movement; there are no special parts of the stolon where the cells move predominantly toward the leading edge and vice versa.
In fact, during the last decades, physicist and mathematician modelers have viewed cell movement as a persistent random walk, which can be modeled using well-known stochastic differential equations.
The team found that shining a low-energy laser at the cells caused the cell movement to stop completely.
Cell to cell movement in plants along with vector specificity depends on structural proteins (Liu et al., 1998; 1999; Boulton, 2002).
Others exhibited defects in cell movement and cell division.
Single cell movement can be performed slowly via a mesenchymal type of migration.
Such studies are yielding insights about cell movement during development and during the spread of cancer.
Once cells are seeded on a biomaterial, coordinated cell movement is a quintessential requirement for cellular proliferation, differentiation, and subsequent tissue regeneration [8].
In addition to color, you've got to look at cell movement and the intensity over time to determine the stage of the cell, and understand what might be actually reflecting the radar.
In the future, we will investigate if and how such changes in surface morphology affect cell movement throughout cell culture.
