Conclusion

La réponse d'une cellule dans le tissu conjonctif, que ce soit un fibroblaste ou le neurone d'un récepteur neuro-sensoriel, à un stress mécanique représenté par l'insertion d'une aiguille d'acupuncture passe par une cascade de régulations impliquant la mécanotransduction. Celle-ci fait intervenir les intégrines et autres nombreux mécanosenseurs sur les plaques d'adhérence focale, le tout aboutissant à l'induction de facteurs de transcription, comme le complexe AP-1. Dans un prochain article, nous étudierons les réactions de transduction.
