Profiling gene expression in endothelial cells advances the understanding of normal vascular physiology and disease processes involving angiogenesis. However, endothelial cell purification has been challenging because of the difficulty of isolating cells and their low abundance. Here we examine gene expression in endothelial cells freshly isolated from lung capillaries after in vivo labeling with fluorescent cationic liposomes and purification by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS).
