5-HT₂ receptor activation induces vasoconstriction, hypertension and platelet aggregation; therefore, its blocking may be useful in cardiovascular diseases, probably due to alterations in the modulation of serotonergic system. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether 5-HT₂ receptor blockade changes serotonergic modulation of sympathetic(More)
Cell-cell adhesions are important sites through which cells experience and resist forces. In endothelial cells, these forces regulate junction dynamics and determine endothelial barrier strength. We identify the Ig superfamily member EMMPRIN (also known as basigin) as a coordinator of forces at endothelial junctions. EMMPRIN localization at junctions(More)

Cadherin-based intercellular adhesions are essential players in epithelial homeostasis, but their dynamic regulation during tissue morphogenesis and remodeling remain largely undefined. Herein, we characterize an unexpected role for the membrane-anchored metalloproteinase MT2-MMP in regulating epithelial cell quiescence. Following co-immunoprecipitation and(More)
