Force-regulation at cellular membranes relies on dynamic molecular platforms that integrate intra- and extracellular signals to control cell shape and function. To correctly respond to a continuously changing environment, activity of these platforms needs to be tightly controlled in space and time. Over the last few years, curvature-dependent mechano-chemical signal translation—a receptor-independent signaling mechanism where physical forces at the plasma membrane trigger nanoscale membrane… CONTINUE READING
