Abstract

Inflammatory responses in all tissue compartments require the emigration of leukocytes from the microvasculature through endothelial cells into the respective microenvironment. Adhesion to endothelial cells is the most crucial step in order to facilitate selective and effective capture of leukocytes. The sequence of adhesions events, e.g. rolling, tethering… (More)
