Figure 3: Use of the QCM to probe the effect of the level of EGFR expression
on the kinetics of EGF-induced changes cell adhesion [80]. The ΔD-response
profiles suggest that cells that over express EGFR (i.e., engineered MCF-10A
cells ) reached a weakly adhered state more quickly and remained in that state
for a longer period of time than cells expressing a normal level of EGFR (i.e.,
wildtype MCF-10A cells).
