Three‐Dimensional Analysis and Computer Modeling of the Capillary Endothelial Vesicular System with Electron Tomography

Three‐dimensional analysis and computer modeling of the capillary endothelial vesicular system with electron tomography with electrontomography is presented.

3D Reconstruction of the Glycocalyx Structure in Mammalian Capillaries using Electron Tomography

Three-dimensional reconstruction of the glycocalyx structure in mammalian capillaries using electron tomography shows clear relationships between EMT activity and apoptosis in response to EMT-guided cell reprograming.

Pathways of Macromolecular Extravasation Across Microvascular Endothelium in Response to VPF/VEGF and Other Vasoactive Mediators

Objective: The goal of these studies was to define the anatomic pathways by which circulating macromolecules extravasate from the hyperpermeable microvessels that supply tumors and from normal

Vesicular transport in capillary endothelium: does it occur?

A reinterpretation of previous studies of vesicular transport shows that they are equally compatible with the present view that plasmalemmal vesicles are static elements of invaginations of the endothelial surface membrane.

Endothelial plasmalemmal vesicles as elements in a system of branching invaginations from the cell surface.

It is proposed that cytoplasmic vesicles in endothelial cells are elements of branching, permanent or semipermanent invaginations of the plasmalemma.

Reconstruction of Three Dimensional Structures from Electron Micrographs

General principles are formulated for the objective reconstruction of a three dimensional object from a set of electron microscope images. These principles are applied to the calculation of a three

The role of vesicles in the transport of ferritin through frog endothelium.

It is suggested that the early constant labelling of cytoplasmic and abluminal vesicles is consistent with the existence of vesicular channels, and albumin may affect vesicle transport by its interaction with the endothelial glycocalyx.

Openings Through Endothelial Cells Associated with Increased Microvascular Permeability

Reconstruction of openings in microvascular endothelium reveals that many pass through the periphery of the endothelial cells close to intact intercellular junctions, suggesting that the transcellular openings may develop from vacuolar channels.
