High stretchability, strength, and toughness of living cells enabled by hyperelastic vimentin intermediate filaments
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2019-08-13)
In many developmental and pathological processes, including cellular migration during normal development and invasion in cancer metastasis, cells are required to withstand severe deformations. The structural integrity of ...
Helical nanofiber yarn enabling highly stretchable engineered microtissue
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2019-04-24)
Development of microtissues that possess mechanical properties mimicking those of native stretchable tissues, such as muscle and tendon, is in high demand for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. However, regardless ...
