CD44 regulates vascular endothelial barrier integrity via a PECAM-1 dependent mechanism

Abstract

Vascular integrity is a critical parameter in normal growth and development. Loss of appropriate vascular barrier function is present in various immune- and injury-mediated pathological conditions. CD44 is an adhesion molecule expressed by multiple cell types, including endothelial cells (EC). The goal of the present study was to examine how loss of CD44… (More)
