Permeability of human endothelial monolayers: effect of vasoactive agonists and cAMP.


Permeability coefficients of human umbilical vein endothelial cell monolayers cultured on polycarbonate filters were determined by monitoring transendothelial albumin transport. Permeability was determined as a function of time in culture and in the presence of vasoactive agonists. Permeability decreased with increasing time in culture. All agonist… (More)
