Video microscopy and digital image processing applied to tissue engineering: Intracellular ion and cell adhesion measurements
To provide a fundamental understanding of the structure/function relationship of cells and tissues, engineers have had to bridge the two worlds of engineering and of molecular and cell biology. Through this multidisciplinary ...
Macromolecular permeability of endothelial cells subjected to biochemical and mechanical stimuli
Endothelial cells line all of the vessels of the circulatory system, providing a non-thrombogenic conduit and form the principal barrier to the transport of substances between the blood and the surrounding tissue. The ...
Leukocyte adhesion to endothelial cells under flow conditions
Leukocyte adhesion to the endothelial cells lining blood vessel walls is a central event in the body's response to injury or infection. These interactions take place in the flowing bloodstream, and previous work has shown ...
Receptor mediated adhesion of sickle erythrocytes and damage to IL-1 beta stimulated endothelial cells under flow conditions in vitro
Enhanced, abnormal adherence of sickle erythrocytes to the endothelium lining blood vessels is hypothesized to contribute to vasoocclusion in sickle cell patients, but the specific molecular mechanisms by which these ...
Tumor cell adhesion stabilization: Regulation and relationship to organ-specific metastasis
Tumor cell arrest and the formation of stable adhesive interactions between tumor cells and endothelial cells or underlying matrix in the microvasculature are crucial steps in the metastatic process. A sensitive hydrodynamic ...
Differential roles of adhesion receptors during neutrophil adhesion to endothelial cells under flow conditions
Neutrophil emigration from the vasculature is an essential part of the primary immune response to infections. It is a multi-step process of cell interaction with the endothelium (capture, rolling, arrest and transmigration) ...
