Mapping cellular nanoscale viscoelasticity and relaxation times relevant to growth of living Arabidopsis thaliana plants using multifrequency AFM

Abstract:

The shapes of living organisms are formed and maintained by precise control in time and space of growth, which is achieved by dynamically fine-tuning the mechanical (viscous and elastic) properties of their hierarchically built structures from the nanometer up. Most organisms on Earth including plants grow by yield (under pressure) of cell walls (bio-polymeric matrices equivalent to extracellular matrix in animal tissues) whose underlying nanoscale viscoelastic properties remain unknown. Mult...
