||"Force equilibration within the membrane is rapid (~milliseconds) [primary source], so that a local increase in the force exerted on the membrane leads to an almost immediate global increase in membrane tension.
Thus, in addition to its local influence on cell boundary dynamics, membrane tension induces mechanical coupling across the cell, providing rapid means for communication over cellular scales [refs 6–8, 12]."
