  • Cell shape in proliferating epithelia: A multifaceted problem CELL Axelrod, J. D. 2006; 126 (4): 643-645


    A specific and unexpected distribution pattern of polygonal cell shapes in proliferating epithelia is revealed in a recent study that combines mathematical modeling with experimental data (Gibson et. al., 2006). This pattern is conserved in epithelia from diverse species, suggesting that this distribution is a fundamental property of proliferating epithelial sheets.
