Architecture of tissue cells the structural basis which determines shape and locomotion of cells

Acta Biotheoretica 34 (2-4):139-148 (1985)
Shape and locomotion of tissue cells depend on the interaction of elements of the cytoskeleton, adhesion to the substrate and an intracellular hydrostatic pressure. The existence of this pressure becomes obvious from increase in cell volume on cessation of contractile forces and from observations with ultrasound acoustic microscopy. Wherever such an internal pressure is established, it is involved in generation of shape and driving force of cell locomotion. Therefore each hypothesis on cell shape and locomotion must consider this property of a living cell. Apparently different types of locomotion depend on differences in substrate adhesion and/or cytoskeleton organisation.
