Microgravity affects cells and tissues either through direct response elements within the cell or by influencing the environment in which the cell lives. Cells respond to decreased gravity and the reordering of forces by changes in gene expression and cellular function. This review will address the unique attributes of microgravity that influence cell growth and function, progressing from ground-based models of microgravity, the cellular response to microgravity, and experimental results from cell experiments in microgravity.
