Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Control mechanism of force-induced cell-to-cell adhesion

Scientists have demonstrated that physical forces, enhance cell-to-cell attachment and increase the stiffness of embryonic tissues as a result of force induced cell shape change. They have also elucidated a part of the signaling pathway underlying the phenomenon. This work reveals how physical forces build-up the structurally robust and stable embryonic tissue architectures during development.
