Exploring early mechanotransduction responses

Exploring early mechanotransduction responses. AoS

Mechanical stress plays a key role in cellular behaviour and fate, affecting the correct development and functionality of tissues and organs. Due to the complexity of the in vivo cellular environment, most mechanotransduction research relies on the

Proteins identified in the immune system of crayfish

Proteins identified in the immune system of crayfish. AoS

Invertebrates characteristically only possess mechanisms of innate immunity, both cellular and humoral, that appear to be activated depending on the pathogens involved. These defense mechanisms are triggered by the activation of the pathogen recognition receptors (PRR). The
