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 7

Final configurations of aggregates of randomly mixed cells with different SINGLE MOVING DISTANCEs. The common conditions to both cell types: ACTIVATION THRESHOLD = 0.4; DRAGGING TIME = {10 or 30}; GAP PREFERENCE = {Htr or Hm}. The areas of the inner cavities within the aggregates in (a), (b), (c), (e), and (f) were 2.597, 0.834, 1.564, 1.352, and 1.420, respectively (SSPs). The CELL DISTRIBUTION RATIO and PERIMETER RATIO of the dark cell type in (d) were 3.948 ± 1.611 (S.D.) and 0.099 ± 0.082, respectively.
