Abstract

The laboratory is engaged in morphomechanics—the study of self-organization of mechanical forces that create the shape and structure of the embryonic primordia. As part of its work, the laboratory described pulsating modes of mechanical stresses in hydroids, identified and mapped mechanical stresses in the tissues of amphibian embryos, and studied morphogenetic reorganization caused by the relaxation and reorientation of tensions. The role of mechanical stresses in maintaining the orderly architectonics of the embryo is shown. Mechano-dependent genes are detected. Microstrains of embryonic tissues and stress gradients associated with them are described. A model of hyper-recovery of mechanical stresses as a possible driving force of morphogenesis is proposed.
