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 ...
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 ...
Flow induced regulation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene expression: Role of shear sensitive promoter elements
Vascular endothelium responds to hemodynamic forces such as shear stress by altering the synthesis and genetic expression of several proteins. Shear stress sensitive promoter elements and transcription factors may be ...
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 ...
