Quantitative Criterion to Predict Cell Adhesion by Identifying Dominant Interaction between Microorganisms and Abiotic Surfaces
Hao Yuan, Xinru Zhang, Zeyi Jiang, Xuehui Chen, and Xinxin Zhang
The images show the dominant interaction in cell adhesion could be identified as either Lewis acid‒base (AB) interaction or electrostatic (EL) interaction with a proposed criterion. When dominated by AB interaction, adhesion would decrease with increasing (γ‒mv)1/2 + (γ‒sv)1/2. When the EL interaction was dominant, adhesion would decrease with increasing (ςm + ςs)2.
