Pannexin-1 in Human Lymphatic Endothelial Cells Regulates Lymphangiogenesis.

The molecular mechanisms governing the formation of lymphatic vasculature are not yet well understood. Pannexins are transmembrane proteins that form channels which allow for diffusion of ions and small molecules (<1 kDa) between the extracellular space and the cytosol. The expression and function of pannexins in blood vessels have been studied in the last… CONTINUE READING
