Mechanical stimuli represent a very important factor influencing cellular processes and functions. The knowledge about mechanical properties of cells is necessary for understanding how cells response to mechanical load. The aim of our research is to develop a credible computational model of the single cell’s mechanical behaviour. The results will contribute to solving of the mechanotransduction problems and to identifing of mechanical properties of the cell’s components. The summary of obtained results from this branch is presented in this paper. Three different FE models were developed. The continuos nonstructural based model, the structural based model with discrete six-struts tenstegrity structure of cytoskeleton and the structuraly based model with cytoskeleton composed of two 30-struts tensegrity structures.
