Homework Help: Cell adhesion

  1. Feb 2, 2009 #1
    hi, was hoping to find some equations or method to find the force needed to break the bonds of a cell that is attched to a surface. I have the force that the cell is bonded with and therefor the force needed to overcome to detach the cell. however it is the overcoming force i need to find. The force should be due to a liquid flow, and the pressure exerted on the surface should create a force on the bondary.

    Thank you for any help.
