We found that mechanical forces control both processes: cell stretching triggers rapid cell division, whereas, crowding causes cell death by a process we call ‘epithelial extrusion’, in which cells fated to die are seamlessly…

CSB Seminar – Professor Boris Hinz, University of Toronto

Ramsay Wright Building, Room 432, 25 Harbord St.

To rapidly restore mechanical stability, a variety of different cell types are activated to acquire a reparative phenotype - the myofibroblast. Hallmarks of the myofibroblast are secretion of extracellular matrix (ECM), development of adhesion structures with the ECM, and formation of actomyosin contractile stress fibers. Rapid repair…
