Mechanics plays an important role in cell function, both in normal physiology and pathological conditions. In the vasculature, the endothelial cells that line blood vessels dynamically respond to the mechanical environment. Endothelial cells sense both fluid shear stress and cyclic stretch, and alterations in these forces may contribute to vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis.
