Dear Vladimir & Ken,
There is an increasing body of work, starting with Avri Ben-Ze'ev 
about 1984, and continued by Lev Beloussov, Don Ingber, me, and 
others, showing that mechanics can be  the initial signal for some 
events of signal transduction. See:

Gordon, R., ed. (1994). Mechanical Engineering of the Cytoskeleton in 
Developmental Biology. Int. Rev. Cytol. 150
