Hironobu Nogucci “Dynamic and static analyses of glass-like properties of three-dimensional tissues”

【Significance】
Effect of space dimension on the cellular rearrangement transitions of biological tissues

Changes in the mechanical properties of individual cells comprising three-dimensional tissues are shown to induce a transition affording a glass-like state. In view of the fact that the above properties (e.g., elasticity, contractility, and surface tension) are strongly dependent on single cell shape, tissue stiffness can be estimated by imaging of constituent cells. Moreover, since a similar relationship between cell shape and tissue stiffness has previously been reported for a two-dimensional case, the upper critical dimension of tissues may equal two, which is the same as that of the material jamming transition.
