BACKGROUND The lymphatic system plays an important role on tissue fluid and protein transportation, immune cell trafficking, lipid absorption, and even cancer metastasis, according to recent research. Disorders of the lymphatic system may lead to extremity edema and fibrosis. To investigate the physiological and pathophysiological characteristics of the lymphatic system, isolation and culture of lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) in vitro are critical, although they remain difficult. The… CONTINUE READING
