In vertebrates, supply of oxygen and nutrients to tissues is carried out by the blood vascular system through capillary networks. Capillary patterns are closely mimicked by endothelial cells cultured on Matrigel, a preparation of basement membrane proteins. On the Matrigel surface, single randomly dispersed endothelial cells self-organize into vascular network s. The networkis characterized by a typical length scale, which is independent of the initial mean density of deposed cells n̄ over a… CONTINUE READING
