Summary

Mechanotransduction has a crucial role for migration, adhesion, invasion, metastasis, angiogenesis and calcification, since it deals with the response of cells to physical forces such as shear stress, osmotic stress, substrate stiffness, and stretch. Signaling pathways such as autophagy, metabolism and exosomes are important to understand how physical cues transduce into cellular machinery to affect healthy and abnormal cells.


This topic focuses on the frontiers in cellular mechanics and the advances in cellular mechanism associated with physiological and pathological conditions.


We welcome biologists, physicists, and medical researchers to contribute original articles and reviews to this issue.
