The mechanical behaviors of cells are closely related to cell biological functions, which are typically studied using the continuum and homogeneous cell model. The associated parameters in these models are determined from experiments, e.g. AFM indentation. In these studies, the effect of nucleus is not explicit studied and thus not clear. In the current study, the indentation behavior of cell with an explicit nucleus is investigated using numerical simulations.
