Abstract

An overview of oscillatory fluid flow as a potent loading-induced physical signal in bone cells, was presented. Some apparent differences between the response of bone cells to oscillatory flow relative to chronic or steady flow were also discussed. It was suggested that the oscillating flow was a distinct physical signal when compared with steady flow that produced a calcium increase involving gadolinium sensitive stretch activated ion channels.
