The cell adhesion protein talin (shown in red) bears mechanical forces of seven to ten piconewton und mediates the engagement of cell adhesions to the actin cytoskeleton (shown in grey).

Impairing the mechanical talin linkage leads to a loss of cellular rigidity sensing (right cell). Credit: MPI of Biochemistry/Carsten Grashoff
