Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cell volume and shape are stringently regulated. This homeostasis requires the cells to sense their size and shape and to convey this information to effectors that will counteract deformations induced by osmotic or mechanical challenges. The sensors, transducers, and effectors of volume change are the subject of this review.
