Unformatted text preview: based on immunostaining of tubulin? (Note: Anti-cancer drugs often act by disrupting cytoskeletal components) Why would you choose this method? 6. Because of all of your help with microscopy and bioconjugation, your labmate Shannon asks you to help her figure out how to measure the mechanical properties of cardiac myocytes (heart muscle cells). (a) How would you obtain these cells? (b) Shannon wants to know the difference in the Young’s modulus near actin stress fibers and near the nucleus, what measurement tool should Shannon use and why? (c) When you perform this experiment you notice that there are rhythmic fluctuations in mechanical properties; what is one way you could prevent active changes in cell mechanical properties?...
