Abstract

To investigate the effect of hyperglycemia on cellular viscoelastic properties in bovine endothelial cells (BECs), rheology was employed. We found that the viscoelastic properties of BECs were altered under high glucose environment. Also high glucose suppressed the formation of actin filament and focal contacts.
