Abstract
Recently, atomic force microscopy (AFM) has become a powerful methodology for studying the biophysical properties (such as stiffness, viscoelasticity, hardness and adhesion). The unique combination of high-resolution imaging and operation in physiological environment made it useful in investigations of cell properties. A change in the physical properties, in particular cell elasticity, of tissue cells has been recognized as an indication of disease and has emerged as a marker for cellular phenotypic events associated with cell adhesion and cytoskeletal organization.
