Results of the elasticity spectra analysis for control and drug treated HEK-293T cells. The elasticity of the cortex (a), of the cytosol (b), and the thickness of the cortex (c) were calculated for a set of control cells (N = 4 with 13–36 cells each) and after treatment with either 10 μM cytochalasin D (Cyto D, inhibiting actin polymerization, N = 5; 17–33 cells) or 1 μM jasplakinolide (Jaspla, inducing actin polymerization, N = 4; 20–36 cells). Error bars represent the variance of the repeats, calculated over the weighted average
