Mechanotransduction: Cell Signaling to Cell Response covers the cell machinery responsible for the process of mechanotransduction and the manner in which cells respond to an external mechanical stimulus. The effect of mechanical stimulus on individual cells and entire tissues is discussed, with an emphasis on the practical results of this physiological process. Mechanotransduction of stem cells and cancerous cells are also covered, along with future directions in this yet nascent field. This book gives insights on basic processes that occur (or may occur) in the human body as a result of the application of mechanical stimulus. It is ideal for both biomedical engineers and biologists, and is an ideal resource for teaching. It provides a current state of conceptual and practical aspects of the field and will enable students and professionals to venture further into this incipient area which is of fundamental importance to biomedical engineering and biology fields. Covers fundamental concepts of signaling in cells as a result of mechanical stimulus Includes the physiological results of mechanical stimulus on the human body Explores the advantages of mechanical loads on the human body

'Mechanotransduction' is the term for the ability, first described by 19th-century anatomist Julius Wolff, of living tissues to sense mechanical stress and respond by tissue remodeling. More recently, the scope of mechanotransduction has been expanded to include the sensation of stress, its translation into a biochemical signal, and the sequence of biological responses it produces. This book looks at mechanotransduction in a more restricted sense, focusing on the process of stress sensing and transducing a mechanical force into a cascade

Mechanobiology of Cell-Matrix Interactions focuses on characterization and modeling of interactions between cells and their local extracellular environment, exploring how these interactions may mediate cell behavior. Studies of cell-matrix interactions rely on integrating engineering, (molecular and cellular) biology, and imaging disciplines. Recent advances in the field have begun to unravel our understanding of how cells gather information from their surrounding environment, and how they interrogate such information during the cell fate decision making process. Topics include adhesive and integrin-ligand interactions;

In today’s world, three great classes of non-infectious diseases – the metabolic syndromes (such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis), the cancers, and the neurodegenerative disorders – have risen to the fore. These diseases, all associated with increasing age of an individual, have proven to be remarkably complex and difficult to treat. This is because, in large measure, when the cellular signaling pathways responsible for maintaining homeostasis and health of the body become dysregulated, they generate equally stable disease states. As a
