Mechanotransduction: Cell Signaling to Cell Response covers the cell machinery responsible for the process of mechanotransduction and the manner in which cells respond to an external mechanical stimulus. The effect of mechanical stimulus on individual cells and entire tissues is discussed, with an emphasis on the practical results of this physiological process. Mechanotransduction of stem cells and cancerous cells are also covered, along with future directions in this yet nascent field. This book gives insights on basic processes that occur (or may occur) in the human body as a result of the application of mechanical stimulus. It is ideal for both biomedical engineers and biologists, and is an ideal resource for teaching. It provides a current state of conceptual and practical aspects of the field and will enable students and professionals to venture further into this incipient area which is of fundamental importance to biomedical engineering and biology fields. Covers fundamental concepts of signaling in cells as a result of mechanical stimulus Includes the physiological results of mechanical stimulus on the human body Explores the advantages of mechanical loads on the human body

Cellular Mechanotransduction

'Mechanotransduction' is the term for the ability, first described by 19th-century anatomist Julius Wolff, of living tissues to sense mechanical stress and respond by tissue remodeling. More recently, the scope of mechanotransduction has been expanded to include the sensation of stress, its translation into a biochemical signal, and the sequence

Physico Chemical Control of Cell Function

Extracellular Matrix (ECM) has been considered for a long time merely a scaffold sustaining cell and tissue function. Despite this simplistic view shared by many, nowadays ECM and their mechanic-physical and chemical characteristic acquired a progressive larger role actively regulating cell life: survival, proliferation, gene expression and differentiation. The interplay
