Note (#17)

(from the abstract): “This exploratory study suggests that bone acts as a molecular sieve and that mechanical loading modulates transport of solutes through the pericellular space that links osteocytes deep within the tissue to the blood supply and to osteoblasts and osteoclasts on bone forming and resorbing surfaces.”
