The endothelium plays an important role in the regulation of molecular exchanges between the blood and peripheral tissues. The transport of molecules between tissues must be tightly controlled in order to maintain homeostasis between the different organs of the body. The endothelial transcytosis pathway has been shown to direct the transfer of proteins and solutes and therefore to act as a filtering system. This transport mode has been demonstrated to involve plasma-membrane vesicles that may… CONTINUE READING
