Endothelial cells (ECs) in the body are constantly being exposed to mechanical forces such as shear stress and hydrostatic pressure due to blood flow, pressure, and deformation of vessel wall. Mechanosensitive ion channels and mechanosensors on the membrane of EC upon external mechanical stimulation transmit, signal and regulate cellular responses. However… CONTINUE READING
