Recent experimental evidence points to the possibility that cell surface-associated caveolae may participate in mechanotransduction. The particular shape of caveolae suggests that these structures serve to prevent exposure of putative mechanosensors residing within these membrane invaginations to shear stresses at magnitudes associated wi...More
