Strain Induced Alterations in Protein Modified Surfaces and Cellular Response

Published

Author(s)

Lisa Pakstis, Joy P. Dunkers

Abstract

All cells experience strain under physiological conditions. However, experiments that are performed under macroscopic strain conditions prevent a direct correlation of applied strain to cell behavior. Our focus is to measure the local stress/strain environment of the cells in a bioreactor under mechanical load and to quantify and predict biological responses at the cellular level. We begin this work by developing methods for deposition and characterization of robust protein surfaces.
