Mechanical Stretching Boosts Expansion and Regeneration of Intestinal Organoids Through Fuelling Stem Cell Self-Renewal

Researchers have discovered that cyclic stretches induce organoid growth and regeneration in a strain-dependent manner. This work offers a new perspective on optimizing organoid generation systems through understanding cross-talk between biotic and abiotic factors, providing potential approaches for the application of mechanical forces in organoid-based models.
