Shear stress due to mechanical loading-induced flow of interstitial fluid through the lacuno-canalicular network is a likely signal for bone cell adaptive responses. Moreover, the rate (determined by frequency and magnitude) of mechanical loading determines the amount of bone formation. Whether the bone cells' response to fluid shear stress is rate(More)
Loading frequency is an important parameter for the stimulation of bone formation in vivo. It is still unclear how the information of external loading characteristics is conveyed to osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Osteocytes are thought to detect mechanical loads by sensing fluid flow through the lacuno-canalicular network within bone and to translate this(More)
