Summary:Epithelial cells are able to sense and mechanically respond to the forces and movements generated and transmitted through their neighbors. These forces are multicellular at the tissue level, and are transmitted via multimeric protein complexes at the cell adhesion sites between two neighboring cells. The cell membrane in epithelial cells serve as a major site for receiving external mechanical forces, and via mechano-transduction these stimuli are converted into intracellular biochemical signals. Previous understanding of the junctional adhesion complexes (cadherin/catenin complex) may provi...
