Regulation of Complexes by Cytoskeletal Elements: Integrins Serve as Force Transducers Linking Mechanical Stimuli and Biochemical Signals

Dan P. Felsenfeld*

Department of Pharmacology and Biological Chemistry, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY 10029, USA.

Abstract: This Teaching Resource provides a summary and slides derived from a lecture on the integrin family members and the downstream signaling pathways they activate; it is part of the course "Cell Signaling Systems: A Course for Graduate Students." The lecture focuses on the capacity of integrins to serve as mechanotransducers, with particular emphasis on signaling mechanisms downstream of integrins.
