Mechanobiology plays a prominent role in cancer invasion and metastasis. The ability of a cancer to degrade extracellular matrix (ECM) is likely connected to its invasiveness. Many cancer cells form invadopodia—micrometer-sized cellular protrusions that promote invasion through matrix degradation (proteolysis). Although it has been hypothesized that invadopodia exert mechanical force that is implicated in cancer invasion, direct measurements remain elusive. Here, we use a recently developed inte...

Cell stiffness is a key cellular material property that changes locally and temporally during many cellular functions including migration, adhesion, and growth. Currently, it is widely accepted that cells adapt their mechanical properties to the stiffness of their surroundings. The link between cortical cell stiffness and substrate mechanics was hypothesized based on atomic force microscopy (AFM) indentation measurements of cells cultured on deformable substrates. Here we show that the force app...

Dyslexia is a common neurodevelopmental disorder with a strong genetic component. Independent genetic association studies have implicated the KIAA0319 gene in dyslexia, however its function is still unknown. We developed a cellular knockout model for KIAA0319 in RPE1 cells via CRISPR-Cas9n to investigate its role in processes suggested but not confirmed in previous studies, including cilia formation and cell migration. We found that KIAA0319 knockout increased cilia length and accelerated cell m...

In the healthy kidney, specialized cells called podocytes form a sophisticated blood filtration apparatus that allows excretion of wastes and excess fluid from the blood while preventing loss of proteins such as albumin. To operate effectively, this filter is under substantial hydrostatic mechanical pressure. Given their function, it is expected that the ability to apply mechanical force is crucial to the survival of podocytes. However, to date, podocyte mechanobiology remains poorly understood,...

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) have reached a huge market as technology for small displays, e.g. in smartphones, and are entering the larger display and solid-state lighting markets as well. In parallel to these commercial successes, the OLED technology is adapted to a multitude of promising new applications, such as in optogenetics and medical therapy. However, it is still challenging to ensure good stability in applications that require high brightness (or high optical power density), i...

Abstract Localization-microscopy-based methods are widely used to map the forces that cells apply to their substrates and to study important questions of cellular biomechanics. By contrast, elastic resonator interference stress microscopy (ERISM) uses an interference-based approach, which requires low light intensity and facilitates imaging of cellular forces with extreme precision (down to pN forces) and robustness (e.g., for continuous force monitoring over weeks). Here, the measurement trade-...

Organic semiconductors enable the fabrication of a range of lightweight and mechanically flexible optoelectronic devices. Most organic semiconductor lasers, however, have remained rigid until now, predominantly due to the need for a support substrate. Here, we use a simple fabrication process to make membrane-based, substrate-less and extremely thin (<500 nm) organic distributed feedback lasers that offer ultralow-weight (m/A<0.5 gm−2) and excellent mechanical flexibility. We show operation of t...

Strong coupling between excitons and photons inside a microcavity leads to the formation of cavity polaritons, hybrid light-matter particles. Under suitable conditions, polaritons can emit coherent light without population inversion, whereby polariton lasing can exhibit a threshold at least an order of magnitude less than that of conventional photon lasing in the same material. Polaritons in organic semiconductors are stable at room temperature, due to their large exciton binding energy. This re...
