Cell to cell junctions direct endothelial responses both in quiescent and angiogenic vessels. Endothelial cells express both tight and adherens junctions. Although different in their specific molecular composition, these junctional complexes present a relatively similar structural and functional arrangement. Transmembrane adhesive proteins that bind homophilically identical molecules on adjacent cells represent the core component in both types of junctions. This intercellular recognition starts… CONTINUE READING
