A tomography approach is used to reconstruct 3D cell shapes and, simultaneously, the shapes/positions of the nuclei within these cells. Subjecting the cells to well-defined microconfinements of various diameters allow for relating the steady-state shapes of cells to their static-mechanical properties. The observed shapes show striking regularities between different cell types and all fit to a model which takes into account the cell membrane, cortical actin and the nucleus.
