Core Tip Polycystins are key regulators of mechano-sensation in several cell types including kidney, vascular endothelial and smooth muscle cells, osteoblasts and cardiac myocytes. Their expression in primary cilium, plasma membrane and endoplasmic reticulum, along with their ability to interact with diverse ion channels, cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix junctional proteins renders polycystins as essential regulators of overall cellular mechanoresponse. Abnormal expression or genetic defects of polycystins result in severe structural and mechanosensing faults including cyst formation, deregulated flow sensing, aneurysms, defective bone development and cancer progression, highlighting their crucial role in human physiology.
