Abstract

Stress waves generated by lasers and extracorporeal lithotripters have been shown to transiently increase the permeability of the plasma membrane, without affecting cell viability. Molecules present in the medium can diffuse into the cytoplasm under the concentration gradient. Molecular uptake under stress waves correlates with the presence of functioning aquaporins in the plasma membrane.
