    Abstract
    Cells in their surrounding environment subjected to biochemical and biomechanical stimuli and respond to this signals. The mechanism by which cells transduce external mechanical signals into responses is called Mechanotransduction and cell use this mechanism to sense and respond to extracellular signals. Cells control processes like migration and division by mechanosensing. Cell migration is one of the most important responses to Cell-ECM interaction. This migration underlies many biological processes including embryogenesis, wound healing, tumorogenesis, morphogenesis and immune defense, so the study of cell migration is of particular importance. If there are external signals in cells...
