Tendon stem/progenitor cells (TSPC) are potential targets for regenerative medicine and the treatment of tendon injuries. The frequency of such injuries increases in elderly patients while the proportion of functional TSPCs in tendon tissue decreases, protracting tendon repair. Using atomic force microscopy (AFM), we show that cell stiffness and size increase in TSPCs isolated from elderly ...
