Supplementary Material

Time lapse video of epithelial-mesenchymal cultures during stretch at 2–10% amplitude at 1 Hz for up to 6 hours (compressed videos) demonstrating the S1. Baseline formation of F-actin (blue) and caspase 3/7 activation (red, Sytox green was used for cell tracking) in control cultures, S2. The increase in formation of F-actin (blue) and caspase 3/7 activation (red) in response to elastase (PPE, 0.6 U/mL), and S3. The inhibition of the increase in F-actin (blue) and caspase 3/7 activation (red) in response to elastase (PPE, 0.6 U/mL) by targeting β1 integrin using JB1a (1 ug/mL).
