... structure. Such a formulation accounting for the inhomogeneity of the cytoplasm due to stress fibers and actin cortex is developed in this work. The proposed model is developed using the Mori-Tanaka method of homogenization by treating the cell as a fiber-reinforced composite medium satisfying the continuum...

... ± SD , n = 7 ) for these two material populations, respectively. The linear structures in AFM images were identified by fluorescence microscopy as bundles of f-actin, or stress fibers. After treatment with 4 μ M cytochalasin B, HAECs behaved like a homogeneous linear elastic material with an apparent...

... and subjected to various magnitudes and rates of pure stretching or compression. The cell orientation and cytoskeletal stress fiber organization responses were examined. Both stretching and compression resulted in magnitude-dependent but not rate-dependent orientation responses away from the deforming direction...
