Shear stress-mediated changes in the expression of leukocyte adhesion receptors on human umbilical vein endothelial cellsin vitro


Extensive monocyte recruitment is an early phenomenon associated with the development of atherosclerotic lesions, suggesting an active role for the involvement of adhesion receptors expressed by endothelial cells. In this study we describe the contribution of hemodynamic shear forces in regulating the expression of a few of the monocyte adhesion receptors… (More)
