    Cell alignment plays a critical role in a variety of cell behavior, including cytoskeleton reorganization, membrane-protein relocation, nuclear gene expression, and extracellular matrix remodeling. Direct current electric field (EF) in vitro can direct many cell types to align vertically to EF vector direction. In this work, we investigated the EF effect on adipose-tissue-derived stromal cell orientation and motility in 2D- and 3D-cultures.
