Environmental Factors That Influence Stem Cell Migration: An “Electric Field”


" a thorough understanding of how EFs direct cell behaviour is not well established. Work to date has revealed that EFs activate a number of channels and that variations in the extracellular and intracellular environment as well as the distribution of channels on the membrane contribute to the galvanotactic response (Figure 1). Cell-specific factors such as cell type and differentiation state, along with time in culture, cell-matrix, and cell–cell contact can influence the galvanotactic response of cells."
