The mechanical properties of cells have been of great interest to scientists from early studies which suggested that mechanical stress-induced alterations in cell shape and structure are critical for control of many cell functions. Although various loading tests of a cell have been designed to understand the cellular mechanical properties, the heterogeneous intracellular structure such as cytoskeletons brings about difficulties in interpreting experimental data.
