Effect of mechanical forces on extracellular matrix synthesis by bovine urethral fibroblasts in vitro.

Abstract

The role of mechanical forces in normal physiological processes is just beginning to be elucidated. Using a system developed in our laboratory, we can apply precise and reproducible mechanical deformations (biaxial strain) to cells. These deformations alter cell activities in a reproducible fashion and may mimic the physical environment found in portions of… (More)
