Intercellular adhesion plays a key role during development and maintenance of tissue homeostasis. Within the vascular system, cell-cell adhesion is particularly important for the correct formation, networking, and remodeling of vessels. Although in vascular endothelial cells adhesive junctions account for the integrity of the vessel wall, they are not to be considered as static molecular structures that function as intercellular glue. This becomes evident during the remodeling of the… CONTINUE READING
