A two-dimensional theoretical model was developed to examine how shear flow-induced cell deformation interacted with cell adhesion kinetics in regulating leukocyte rolling. It was found that shear flow-induced cell deformation not only affected fluid energy input to the rolling cells and the viscous cytoplasm dissipation, it also greatly influenced adhesion energy dissipation by changing cell-substrate contact area. Adhesion kinetics also influenced cell rolling velocity through the adhesion energy dissipation.
