In this study, we sought to determine if there is a requirement for calcium entry from the extracellular space as well as calcium from intracellular stores to produce real-time intracellular calcium responses in cultured bone cells subjected to fluid flow. Understanding calcium cell signaling may help to elucidate the biophysical transduction mechanism(s) mediating the conversion of fluid flow to a cellular signal. An experimental design which utilized a scheme of pharmacological blockers was… CONTINUE READING
