Term Name: cellular response to hydrostatic pressure Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • cellular response to biomechanical stress
  • cellular response to static fluid pressure
Definition: Any process that results in a change in state or activity of a cell (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a hydrostatic pressure stimulus. Hydrostatic pressure is the force acting on an object in a system where the fluid is at rest (as opposed to moving). The weight of the fluid above the object creates pressure on it.
