Abstract

Collective cell motions play essential roles in the regulation of various complex biological processes such as embryogenesis, tissue regeneration, and carcinogenesis. In this study, we present a novel plasma lithography technique for creating surface functionalized confinements toward the investigation of collective cell migration. The ability to confine cells one-dimensionally using plasma lithography is demonstrated to facilitate quantification of collective cell migratory behaviors including the overall speed and the probability of velocity change upon cell-cell contact. This quantitative information in cell-cell interactions will allow us to understand the dynamics of collective cell migration from a systems biology perspective.
