The significance of bone microstructure in mechanotransduction.


Recent developments in modeling the relationship between bone microstructure and mechanotransduction are reviewed. The focus is on the relationship between the bone microstructure and the mechanosensation mechanism by which osteocytes sense the bone fluid motion propelled by the mechanical loading of the whole bone.
