Mechanosensation : A Catch Bond That Only Hooks One Way

Swaminathan, Vinay LU ; Alushin, Gregory M and Waterman, Clare M (2017) In Current Biology 27(21). p.1158-1160
Abstract

Single-molecule force spectroscopy and modeling have revealed that the adhesion molecule vinculin and F-actin form a catch bond that is dependent on the direction of forces along the actin filament. This may underlie the mechanisms by which cells sense directional physical cues.
