Membrane microviscosity regulates endothelial cell motility


Endothelial cell (EC) movement is an initiating and rate-limiting event in the neogenesis and repair of blood vessels. Here, we explore the hypothesis that microviscosity of the plasma membrane (PM) is a key physiological regulator of cell movement. Aortic ECs treated with membrane-active agents, such as α-tocopherol, cholesterol and lysophospholipids… (More)
