Effect of cAMP derivates on assembly and maintenance of tight junctions in human umbilical vein endothelial cells


Endothelial tight and adherens junctions control a variety of physiological processes like adhesion, paracellular transport of solutes or trafficking of activated leukocytes. Formation and maintenance of endothelial junctions largely depend on the microenvironment of the specific vascular bed and on interactions of the endothelium with adjacent cell types… (More)
