Short-Term Shear Stress Induces Rapid Actin Dynamics in Living Endothelial Cells.

Abstract

Hemodynamic shear stress guides a variety of endothelial phenotype characteristics, including cell morphology, cytoskeletal structure, and gene expression profile. The sensing and processing of extracellular fluid forces may be mediated by mechanotransmission through the actin cytoskeleton network to intracellular locations of signal initiation. In this… (More)
