  • Active superelasticity in three-dimensional epithelia of controlled shape 

    Latorre Ibars, Ernest; Kale, Sohan Sudhir; Casares, Laura; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino (Macmillan Publishers, 2018-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Fundamental biological processes are carried out by curved epithelial sheets that enclose a pressurized lumen. How these sheets develop and withstand three-dimensional deformations has remained unclear. Here we combine ...
  • Hydraulic fracture during epithelial stretching 

    Casares, Laura; Vincent, Romaric; Zalvidea, Dobryna; Campillo, Noelia; Navajas, Daniel; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino; Trepat Guixer, Xavier (2015-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The origin of fracture in epithelial cell sheets subject to stretch is commonly attributed to excess tension in the cells' cytoskeleton, in the plasma membrane, or in cell-cell contacts. Here, we demonstrate that for a ...
  • Physical principles of membrane remodelling during cell mechanoadaptation 

    Casares, Laura; Elosegui Artola, Alberto; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino; Navajas, Daniel; Roca Cusachs, Pere (2015-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Biological processes in any physiological environment involve changes in cell shape, which must be accommodated by their physical envelope-the bilayer membrane. However, the fundamental biophysical principles by which the ...
