Abstract

Spatiotemporal control of cell protrusions and migration were achieved on a photoactivatable cell-culturing substrate. Single cells were micropatterned on the substrate and were induced to extend lamellipodia or filopodia alternatively by the subsequent formation of wide or narrow paths in their surroundings, respectively. By tracking the migration of individual cells in a microarray format, we demonstrated that the cell migration led by lamellipodia was more rapid than that led by filopodia.
