Development of a cell culture system loading cyclic mechanical strain to chondrogenic cells.

Abstract

Mechanical stimulation is considered to be one of the major epigenetic factors regulating the metabolism, proliferation, survival and differentiation of cells in the skeletal tissues. It is generally accepted that the cytoskeleton can undergo remodeling in response to mechanical stimuli such as tensile strain or fluid flow. Mechanically induced cell… (More)
