Correlative Fluorescence and Acoustic Microscopy in the Study of Cell Volume Regulation
A fundamental property of many animal cells is the ability to regulate their volume under osmotic perturbation and during cell shape change. Osmotic perturbation is associated not only with a wide variety of pathological conditions but also with a large number of cellular physiological activities like cell migration, proliferation and apoptosis.
