Physics of Adherent Cells
by Ulrich S. Schwarz, Samuel S. Safran
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 58
One of the most unique physical features of cell adhesion to external surfaces is the active generation of mechanical force at the cell-material interface. Here a review is given of recent progress in our understanding of the role of forces in cell adhesion from the viewpoint of theoretical soft matter physics and in close relation to the relevant experiments.

The genetics of chloroplasts and mitochondrial inheritance have only fairly recently come to represent a major preoccupation of both molecular and cell biologists, who have been prompted to probe deeply into the energy-producing centers of the cell.
