Cell lawn detachment may represent a manifestation of natural morphological processes, such as cell migration or astrocyte stellation. Reversal of the stellate phenotype by thrombin or changes in astrocyte morphology described for tPA may utilize the same cellular pathway, since both are regulated by ROCK [15, 36].
