From: Computational cell model based on autonomous cell movement regulated by cell-cell signalling successfully recapitulates the "inside and outside" pattern of cell sorting

Figure 1

Modeling of cells. (a) A single cell with a size of 19 hexagons and a nearly round shape in a free lattice space. (b) A cell with a larger (21 hexagons) than standard (19 hexagons) size contracts with two other cells and "pulls" either of the two cells, which is "stretched" by cell adhesion. (c) A distorted cell shifts its core position in the direction indicated by the black arrow because its core position is far from the center of the cell's body.
