Mechanotransduction is the process by which physical forces are converted into biochemical signals that are then integrated into cellular responses. It plays a crucial role in bone repair and regeneration and thus has attracted a great deal of interest from researchers in various fields. This report reviews the current clinical evidence that shows the role mechanotransduction plays in bone processes such as physical adaptation, pathological fracture healing, and therapeutic distraction…

Mechanotransduction and fracture repair.
TLDR
This article focuses on several key unanswered questions in the study of mechanotransduction and fracture repair, including identifying the mechanical stimuli that promote bone-healing, defining the mechanisms that are involved in this process, and examining the potential for cross-talk between investigations of mechanOTransduction in bone- healing and in healing of other mesenchymally derived tissues.
FAK-Mediated Mechanotransduction in Skeletal Regeneration
TLDR
The genetic basis for mechanotransduction is investigated using the bone marrow as a model system and physical stimuli produced a pattern of principal strain that precisely corresponded to the site-specific expression of sox9 and runx2, two transcription factors required for the commitment of stem cells to a skeletogenic lineage, and the arrangement of newly deposited type I collagen fibrils.
Mechanobiology of Skeletal Regeneration
TLDR
Finite element models are used to show that the patterns of tissue differentiation observed in fracture healing and distraction osteogenesis can be predicted from fundamental mechanobiologic concepts.
A Model for mechanotransduction in bone cells: The load‐bearing mechanosomes
TLDR
This work proposes that mechanical information is relayed from the bone to the gene in part by a succession of deformations, changes in conformations, and translocations, and identifies specific candidate proteins fitting the profile of load‐signaling mechanosomes.
Mechanotransduction pathways in bone: calcium fluxes and the role of voltage-operated calcium channels
TLDR
Research is outlined on the early rapid signals for load transduction and, in particular, activation of membrane channels in osteoblasts and the involvement of calcium channels in the immediate load response and the modulation of intra-cellular calcium as an early signal.
Sensitivity of osteocytes to biomechanical stress in vitro
TLDR
Data provide evidence that osteocytes are the most mechanosensitive cells in bone involved in the transduction of mechanical stress into a biological response, and support the hypothesis that stress on bone causes fluid flow in the lacunar‐canalicular system, which stimulates the osteocytes to produce factors that regulate bone metabolism.

The role of osteocytes in bone mechanotransduction
TLDR
It is proposed that if osteocytes could sense matrix strains directly, the cellshape, cytoskeletal alignment and distribution of adhesionsites in osteocytes in situ would bear alignment to themechanical loading patterns.
