(Figure Presented) Magnetic attraction: Artificial control of cell activities is achieved by nanoscale magneto-activated cellular signaling (N-MACS), in which magnetic nanoparticles are selectively linked to cell surface receptors and aggregated by an external magnetic field. Such mechanocellular activation induces downstream cell signaling and initiates tubulogenesis in the preangiogenesis stage of endothelial cells (see picture).
