shear stress, while the fibrosa side experiences oscillatory shear stress. The fibrosa side which is dominated by relatively lower shear stresses and disturbed, oscillatory flow patterns is a common site for calcified nodules in the manifestation of

studies revealed that Cx37 and Cx40 are highly expressed in ECs of straight parts of arteries that are exposed to high laminar shear stress and that these Cxs are downregulated in ECs at arterial branch points or bifurcations subjected to a disturbed blood

phenotype specification was promoted in hPSC-EC cultures exposed to shear stress, as demonstrated by the upregulation of arterial markers Ephrin B2 and Notch1 ( 37 ). However, whilst it is now possible to obtain large numbers of hPSC-EC, optimisation of the

of miR-126 were found in the athero-susceptible areas characterized by disturbed flow ( 29 ). Other atheroprotective miRNAs are miR-143/145, which are upregulated in EC under laminar shear stress and which target gene expression in VSMCs ( 30

endothelial EVs released under shear stress are taken up by smooth muscle cells, where they downregulate target genes, inducing atheroprotective effects ( 43 ). On the other hand, pericyte-derived miR-132 is taken up by ECs, resulting in a higher proangiogenic
