Unformatted text preview: EN 585.629 Cell and Tissue Engineering Module 05: Morphogenesis Assignment Total Point Value = 30 Due by midnight on Day 7 of Module 5 This should be submitted to Blackboard as a pdf. 1. 2. 3. 4. Exercise 3.1 From Tissue Engineering, Saltzman Explain why fingerprints can be used to tell identical twins apart. Describe how semaphorins and slits function similarly in directed migration. Gradient caculations. a. Gradients of soluble morphogen are used to direct both cell specification and cell migration in the embryo. Given the diagram quantitatively determine the location (2µm or 32µm) at which the blue cells feel the steepest gradient. b. Cells use special structures called filopodia to sense their local environment. These thin projections of the actin cytoskeleton reach out and survey both the chemical and mechanical composition of the environment as the cell decides what direction to migrate in. Quantitatively determine how filopodia change the gradient sensed by the cell in the diagram below.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
