Introduction The endothelial cell (EC) monolayer forms the inner cellular lining of all blood vessels forming a critical interface between blood and tissue ( 1 ). Vascular endothelium is involved in physiological functions, which include

arterial endothelium of the common carotid artery (b) and at the carotid bifurcation (C). Nuclei are stained with DAPI (in blue). Scare bar represents 30 µm. Small muscular arteries and arterioles regulate arterial blood pressure and blood flow

graft. (B and C) CD31 immunohistology for endothelial cells shows the luminal endothelium reaching from the adjacent carotid artery at day 28 (C). There are no significant differences in transanastomotic endothelialization between the groups (D). Arrow

iono/osmo regulation, and impact immune reaction. By virtue of their huge surface area the endothelium is an important interface between systemic hormonal signalling and tissue metabolic responses. Consequently, endothelial dysfunction is known to make

-endothelialisation following endothelial injury in mice by stimulating endothelial migration and proliferation upon transfer of functional miR-126 to target endothelium, with subsequent downregulation of SPRED1 ( 42 ). We have demonstrated that NF-kB signalling induced miR-503

now recognized that the endothelium is much more than only a transport system for blood flow and that endothelial cells (ECs) play a variety of important roles during cardiac development and in growth and homeostasis of the adult heart. The adult human

pathophysiological role of the endothelium in COVID-19 onset and progression. Vascular endothelial cells form a highly effective barrier between the circulation and peripheral tissues and play a key role in the maintenance of vessel tone, hemostasis, immune response

flow are an essential environmental factor that activate the vascular endothelium. However, in addition to mechanotransduction properties, flow also directs secondary effects associated with chemical signaling, such as, for example, the transport of
