Expression and Analysis of Flow-regulated Ion Channels in Xenopus Oocytes
Authors:  Shujie Shi and Marcelo D. Carattino, date: 04/20/2017, view: 848, Q&A: 0
Mechanically-gated ion channels play key roles in mechanotransduction, a process that translates physical forces into biological signals. Epithelial and endothelial cells are exposed to laminar shear stress (LSS), a tangential force exerted by ...
