Electrically regulated morphological and cytoskeletal changes of HeLa cells were studied on an optically transparent electrode (OTE), on which potential-applied surface cellular behavior and morphogenesis were easily observed. Upon application of a potential, HeLa cells in an OTE exhibited remarkable morphological changes above +0.5 V (vs. Ag/AgCl) and below 0 V. At each potential in this potential range, change in F-actin distribution was observed using a fluorescent probe (rhodamine phalloidin). These results suggest that an electrical field induces a subcellular cytoskeletal change. Electrostimulation of cells with OTE can be a valuable strategy for the manipulation of cultured human cells.
