  • Technology category with their suggestion titled "Argon gas fluidization instead of mechanical agitation"; G Satheesh, R N Sotaso and N B Ajeeth topped the Environmental category with "Safe access for fumes duct damper maintenance/replacement"; while P Sethuraman and G Vijayakumar triumphed in the Safety category with "Safety interlock for tilting hoist motor".

  • Moreover, myosin dynamics alone could hardly account for responses of opposite sign - fluidization versus reinforcement - that are observed in the cases of homogeneous versus nonhomogeneous cell stretch, respectively.

  • The fluidization response stands in contrast to the reinforcement response associated with local cell stretch applied through an attached microbead or microneedle, in which case local stiffness and force are seen to increase and to do so on the time scale of seconds.

  • As regards the important issue of mechano-protection, the reinforcement response vis-à-vis the fluidization response both seem logical protective strategies - either brace for the storm or go with the flow.

  • Whereas the reinforcement response is known to be mediated by upstream mechanosensing and downstream signaling, results presented here show the fluidization response to be altogether novel: it is a direct physical effect of mechanical force acting upon a structural lattice that is soft and fragile.

  • The fluidization response does not depend upon stretch isotropy
