Epigenesis in classical embryology is regarded as self-complication of spatial organization of the embryo during its development. The reality of the phenomenon of self-complication at the cellular and supra-cellular levels has been demonstrated by classical experimental embryology. Today, in light of studies of cell differentiation mechanisms, this problem acquired a molecular aspect. However, the attempt to solve it within the limits of molecular level leads to the paradox of “irreducible complexity.” The discovery of a physical factor that concurrently would influence the processes of supracellular and molecular levels would be the best way to solve the problem of self-complication. The mechanical tension in cells and tissues of a developing organism may play the role of such factor. The paper considers facts on the role of mechanical stresses in morphogenesis and gene expression.
