Curvotaxis - the effect of curvature on cells and tissue — Lea Hppel, Jan Sischka, and •Axel Voigt — Institute of Scientific Computing, Technische Universität Dresden, Germany
How do cells respond to curvature? Does curvature has an influence on cell shape and movement? What are the consequences for collective behaviour of interacting cells in tissue? We address these questions using a multiphase field model on different curved surfaces and compare the results with experimental data on pillars, in tubes and other surfaces. The results show a significant influence of curvature and the possibility to effectively model the observed phenomena with classical models and additional curvature terms.
