Hypo-osmotic stress induces calcium-dependent actin reorganization in articular chondrocytes.

Journal Article, Research Support, U.S. Gov't, P.H.S.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of hypo-osmotically induced calcium (Ca(2+)) transients on the organization of the actin cytoskeleton in articular chondrocytes. The secondary hypothesis tested was that actin restructuring following hypo-osmotic stress is mediated by gelsolin.
