Abstract

The adhesion of membrane cytoskeleton of the cell was studied by physically detaching the phospholipid membrane from the cytoskeleton by forming long, thin, membrane cylinders called `tethers'. The force on both the stationary and moving tether was measured, which was then related to the underlying adhesive, elastic and tensile properties of the membrane and cytoskeleton.
