No significant difference in WT & KO Viscosities

WT Elasticity is significantly larger than KO

WT Relaxation Time is significantly faster than KO

N = 10 cells

Conclusions
• The stiffness and relaxation time constants are significantly different in p120 knockout and wild-type MDCK cells.
• 2. The stiffness decreases & relaxation time slows down when p120 expression is reduced in MDCK cells.
Strain Hardening

Stiffness (Pa-m)

• The stiffness of the adhesion protein linker system increases when stress is repeatedly applied.
