To determine whether primary cilia act as mechanosensors in bone, intracellular calcium release and prostaglandin E2 release were examined. The existence of primary cilia in bone tissue was confirmed using immunoflourescent detection of acetylated α-tubulin. PGE2 was quantifued using a commercial ELISA kiet and normalized to total protein. Real-time intracellular levels of calcium were quantified.
