Programmed subcellular release for studying the dynamics of cell detachment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Cell detachment is central to a broad range of physiopathological changes, but there are no quantitative methods to study this process. Here we report programmed subcellular release, a method for spatially and temporally controlled cellular detachment, and present quantitative results of the detachment dynamics of 3T3 fibroblasts at the subcellular level.
