...
Top: The cell pulls to maintain a fixed stretch in the gel. Middle:  If the gel is externally stretched, the cell can reduce the force it exerts.  Bottom: If the gel is alternately stretched and relaxed, the frustrated cell  cannot "decide" how much force to exert. This results in the cell orienting  perpendicular to the stretch direction
