Upregulation of PIP3-dependent RAC Exchanger 1 (P-Rex1) Promotes Prostate Cancer Metastasis
(Creighton University, 2008-08-18)
Activation of Rac by guanine-nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) at the leading edge of the cell plays an important role in directional cell migration, a critical step of tumor metastasis cascades. We investigated the role ...
Hybrid Ray Optics and Continuum Mechanics Modeling of Cell Deformation in the Optical Stretcher
(Creighton University, 2008-01-21)
Since the invention of the optical stretcher in 2001, no direct method has been found for measuring the optical stress that produces the observed trapping and stretching of biological cells and other dielectrics. Hence, ...
