Does cell rotate/spin counter clockwise

Postby yongkua » Thu Jan 24, 2008 6:08 am

I was told that healthy cell rotates/spin counter clockwise and cancerous cell rotate clockwise. Is there any truth in this? Appreciate any feedback.

Good one.
No, I don't think so

i doubt it,
cells are pretty securely fixed in place. as for thier innerds, I think the cytoskeliton prevents excess movement.
I find the biology of lesser spiecies fascenating..... thats why I study humans :twisted:

Are you possibly referring to cytoplasmic streaming?
