Update on the cellular and molecular basis of capillary permeability.


The attenuated layer of endothelial cells lining the blood vessels forms the critical barrier controlling the exchange of molecules from the blood to the interstitial fluid. The interactions of normally circulating blood molecules with the endothelial glycocalyx can either restrict transcapillary exchange in general or selectively increase transendothelial… (More)
