Natural biosensor for blood flow discovered in blood vessels.

Physical forces like blood pressure and the shear stress of flowing blood are important parameters for the tension of blood vessels. Researchers have been looking for a measurement sensor for many years that links blood flow and the tension in blood vessels.  Now, a study from researchers at the Max Planck Institute identifies just such a sensor, PIEZO1, a cation
