Given our increasing understanding of intracellular signaling pathways, these observations suggest that changes in cell morphology may provide both signaling mechanisms as well as protection under excessively high compressive loads. Compression induced changes in chondrocyte morphology vary with local tissue strains  and have been shown to coincide with differential expression of collagen types  and release of latent degradative enzymes, such as procollagenase [72,73]. Thus, cellular deformation may be a primary determinant in the regulation of cartilage metabolism by mechanical loading.
