Abstract
Tissue surface tension (TST) is an important mechanical property influencing cell sorting and tissue envelopment. The study by Manning et al. (1) reported on a mathematical model describing TST on the basis of the balance between adhesive and tensile properties of the constituent cells. The model predicts that, in high-adhesion cell aggregates, surface cells will be stretched to maintain the same area of cell–cell contact as interior bulk cells, resulting in an elongated and flattened cell shape. The authors (1) observed flat and elongated cells at the surface of high-adhesion zebrafish germ-layer explants, which they argue are undifferentiated stretched germ-layer progenitor cells, and they use this observation as a validation of their model.
