  • Similar to epithelia, endothelial cells are linked to each other via intercellular junctional complexes including gap junctions, adherens junctions and tight junctions. While polarized epithelial cells show a high degree of spatial sorting of junctional complexes, endothelia organize their junctions randomly. For this reason the nature of endothelial contacts may be highly adaptable to the need of permeability and leukocyte transmigration. For instance, high endothelial venules (HEVs) in… CONTINUE READING
