How Does a Cell Know it's in Space?

Researchers have discovered that mechanical forces, including decreased gravity loads in space, deform cell walls and thereby the cell's internal, flexible "skeleton." This stimulates new molecular interactions in cells that control biological functions. Further understanding of this basic process may lead to improved development of bioengineering tissues to help with disease treatment.
