Shear stress, the frictional drag on the endothelium from blood flow, is a major determinant of vascular physiology and pathology. Due to the pulsatile nature of blood flow, blood vessels are subjected to significant variations in mechanical forces. Endothelial cells situated at the interface between blood and the vessel wall play a crucial role in(More)
