Catch bonds.
Curr Biol. 2012 Oct 9;22(19):R823-5.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23058795
NOTE: From article: "catch bonds are receptor-ligand bonds whose lifetime increases with tensile force applied to the bond (in contrast to the more prevalent slip bonds, whose lifetime is shortened by tensile forces acting on the bond)". They appear to be involved in adhesion or cell function in the presence of tensile forces.
