The future of traction force microscopy

Abstract:

Animal cells continuously sense and respond to mechanical force. Quantifying these forces remains a major challenge in bioengineering; yet such measurements are essential for the understanding of cellular function. Traction force microscopy is one of the most successful and broadly-used force probing technologies, chosen for the simplicity of its implementation, flexibility to mimic cellular conditions, and well-established analysis pipe-line. Here, we review the accomplishments, and discuss ...
