Cell Nuclear Force Probe Reveals Mechanomemory That May Impact Cell Memory and Health

BioE Professor Ning Wang published research in Cell Reports that demonstrates a process of mechanomemory, or response long after applied force has ceased, within a cell’s nucleus. This discovery prompts a prolonged period of activation of a protein complex responsible for gene expression, which can lead to making new proteins and potentially healthier cells.
