Abstract

Cell motility was studied by examining the relationship between epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling and the contractile force developments in the model NR6 fibroblast cell transfected with the human EGFR and grown in collagen lattices. The NR6 fibroblasts exhibited a distinct short term contractile force response to EGF stimulation in the range comparable to other investigations.
