Applying Tensile and Compressive Force to Xenopus Animal Cap Tissue

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Over many years, the Xenopus laevis embryo has provided a powerful model system to investigate how mechanical forces regulate cellular function. Here, we describe a system to apply reproducible tensile and compressive force to X. laevis animal cap tissue explants and to simultaneously assess cellular behavior using live confocal imaging.
