Cell Surface Dynamics

  • Mohammad Ashrafuzzaman


Cell surface materials are quite dynamic. The timescales of dynamics often fall at the order of millisecond to microsecond or even lower ranges. Both slow and fast dynamics of cell surface are known to follow general physics rules. Cell contains biological components having mostly chemical and physical properties. Cell surface structure can better be explained using its physical properties, specifically mechanical and electrical properties. These properties generally serve the causes of specific surface dynamics. This chapter will focus at an in-depth analysis of the cell surface dynamics.
