Cultured aortic endothelial cells, like their in vivo counterparts, form highly organized, confluent monolayers of polarized epithelioid cells that secrete, exclusively at their basal surface, an extracellular matrix to which they then attach. The influence of isolated subendothelial matrix preparations on cell polarity and monolayer organization was studied by presenting fragments of the matrix to confluent bovine aortic endothelial cell cultures. The matrix particles were immediately bound to… CONTINUE READING
