• α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA)-positive cardiac myofibroblasts (CMF) release paracrine mediators that affect cardiomyocyte (CM) structure and function. (ahajournals.org)
  • In fact, different organs in the body -even between different species - are known to utilize a similar sets of paracrine factors in differential development. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recent advances in peripheral taste physiology now suggest that the classic linear view of information processing within the taste bud is inadequate and that paracrine processing, although undemonstrated, may be an essential feature of peripheral gustatory transduction. (physiology.org)
  • Membrane vesicle trafficking has an important role in intercellular communications in humans and animals, e.g., in synaptic transmission, hormone secretion via vesicular exocytosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mechanically induced intercellular calcium communication in confined endothelial structures. (nih.gov)
