A novel model for one-dimensional morphoelasticity. Part II - Application to the contraction of fibroblast-populated collagen lattices

Abstract:

Fibroblast-populated collagen lattices are commonly used in experiments to study the interplay between fibroblasts and their pliable environment. Depending on the method by which they are set, these lattices can contract significantly, in some cases contracting to as little as 10% of their initial lateral (or vertical) extent. When the reorganisation of such lattices by fibroblasts is interrupted, it has been observed that the gels re-expand slightly but do not return to their original size. ...
