Abstract [en]

We present an improved device and method for studying cellular response onmicrofluidic controlled stimuli of primary cilia. The primary cilium functions as amechano-sensor in renal tubular epithelium. Malfunction of cilia has been implicated inpolycystic kidney decease as well as other kidney abnormalities. Bending of cilia willgive rise to an intracellular calcium signal [1,2,3], but little is known about theimportance of flow direction, magnitude and duration to the calcium response. Ourpreliminary results indicate flow speed sensitivity.
