Methods for exposing multiple cultures of endothelial cells to different fluid shear stresses and to cytokines, for subsequent analysis of inflammatory function.


Endothelial cells are conditioned by physicochemical environmental factors, including shear stress applied by flowing blood. However, the effects of shear conditioning on the functional responses of endothelial cells, such as ability to recruit leukocytes, remain uncertain. Here we describe a system for culturing multiple samples of endothelial cells under… (More)
