Stick-slip motion and elastic coupling in crawling cells
Physical Review E
3 Crawling cells exhibit a variety of cell shape dynamics ranging from complex ruffling and bubbling to oscillatory protrusion and retraction. Periodic shape changes during cell migration are recorded in fast moving fish epithelial keratocytes where sticking and slipping at opposite sides of the cell's broad trailing edge generate bipedal locomotion. Barnhart et al. recently proposed a mechanical spring model specifically designed to capture bipedal locomotion in these cells.
