Receptor-specific binding of von Willebrand factor to platelets in response to shear stress
Physical and biochemical forces convert platelets in human blood in vivo from the quiescent state as freely moving, discoid, singlets to aggregates adhering to subendothelial surfaces and secreting a wide variety of bioactive ...
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 ...
