VEGF is required for growth and survival in neonatal mice. (1/3987)

We employed two independent approaches to inactivate the angiogenic protein VEGF in newborn mice: inducible, Cre-loxP- mediated gene targeting, or administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, a soluble VEGF receptor chimeric protein. Partial inhibition of VEGF achieved by inducible gene targeting resulted in increased mortality, stunted body growth and impaired organ development, most notably of the liver. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, which achieves a higher degree of VEGF inhibition, resulted in nearly complete growth arrest and lethality. Ultrastructural analysis documented alterations in endothelial and other cell types. Histological and biochemical changes consistent with liver and renal failure were observed. Endothelial cells isolated from the liver of mFlt(1-3)-IgG-treated neonates demonstrated an increased apoptotic index, indicating that VEGF is required not only for proliferation but also for survival of endothelial cells. However, such treatment resulted in less significant alterations as the animal matured, and the dependence on VEGF was eventually lost some time after the fourth postnatal week. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG to juvenile mice failed to induce apoptosis in liver endothelial cells. Thus, VEGF is essential for growth and survival in early postnatal life. However, in the fully developed animal, VEGF is likely to be involved primarily in active angiogenesis processes such as corpus luteum development.  (+info)

Microvessels from Alzheimer's disease brains kill neurons in vitro. (2/3987)

Understanding the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease is of widespread interest because it is an increasingly prevalent disorder that is progressive, fatal, and currently untreatable. The dementia of Alzheimer's disease is caused by neuronal cell death. We demonstrate for the first time that blood vessels isolated from the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients can directly kill neurons in vitro. Either direct co-culture of Alzheimer's disease microvessels with neurons or incubation of cultured neurons with conditioned medium from microvessels results in neuronal cell death. In contrast, vessels from elderly nondemented donors are significantly (P<0.001) less lethal and brain vessels from younger donors are not neurotoxic. Neuronal killing by either direct co-culture with Alzheimer's disease microvessels or conditioned medium is dose- and time-dependent. Neuronal death can occur by either apoptotic or necrotic mechanisms. The microvessel factor is neurospecific, killing primary cortical neurons, cerebellar granule neurons, and differentiated PC-12 cells, but not non-neuronal cell types or undifferentiated PC-12 cells. Appearance of the neurotoxic factor is decreased by blocking microvessel protein synthesis with cycloheximide. The neurotoxic factor is soluble and likely a protein, because its activity is heat labile and trypsin sensitive. These findings implicate a novel mechanism of vascular-mediated neuronal cell death in Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

Angiosarcomas express mixed endothelial phenotypes of blood and lymphatic capillaries: podoplanin as a specific marker for lymphatic endothelium. (3/3987)

Angiosarcomas apparently derive from blood vessel endothelial cells; however, occasionally their histological features suggest mixed origin from blood and lymphatic endothelia. In the absence of specific positive markers for lymphatic endothelia the precise distinction between these components has not been possible. Here we provide evidence by light and electron microscopic immunohistochemistry that podoplanin, a approximately 38-kd membrane glycoprotein of podocytes, is specifically expressed in the endothelium of lymphatic capillaries, but not in the blood vasculature. In normal skin and kidney, podoplanin colocalized with vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-3, the only other lymphatic marker presently available. Complementary immunostaining of blood vessels was obtained with established endothelial markers (CD31, CD34, factor VIII-related antigen, and Ulex europaeus I lectin) as well as podocalyxin, another podocytic protein that is also localized in endothelia of blood vessels. Podoplanin specifically immunolabeled endothelia of benign tumorous lesions of undisputed lymphatic origin (lymphangiomas, hygromas) and was detected there as a 38-kd protein by immunoblotting. As paradigms of malignant vascular tumors, poorly differentiated (G3) common angiosarcomas (n = 8), epitheloid angiosarcomas (n = 3), and intestinal Kaposi's sarcomas (n = 5) were examined for their podoplanin content in relation to conventional endothelial markers. The relative number of tumor cells expressing podoplanin was estimated and, although the number of cases in this preliminary study was limited to 16, an apparent spectrum of podoplanin expression emerged that can be divided into a low-expression group in which 0-10% of tumor cells contained podoplanin, a moderate-expression group with 30-60% and a high-expression group with 70-100%. Ten of eleven angiosarcomas and all Kaposi's sarcomas showed mixed expression of both lymphatic and blood vascular endothelial phenotypes. By double labeling, most podoplanin-positive tumor cells coexpressed endothelial markers of blood vessels, whereas few tumor cells were positive for individual markers only. From these results we conclude that (1) podoplanin is a selective marker of lymphatic endothelium; (2) G3 angiosarcomas display a quantitative spectrum of podoplanin-expressing tumor cells; (3) in most angiosarcomas, a varying subset of tumor cells coexpresses podoplanin and endothelial markers of blood vessels; and (4) all endothelial cells of Kaposi's sarcomas expressed the lymphatic marker podoplanin.  (+info)

Microvascular function relates to insulin sensitivity and blood pressure in normal subjects. (4/3987)

BACKGROUND: A strong but presently unexplained inverse association between blood pressure and insulin sensitivity has been reported. Microvascular vasodilator capacity may be a common antecedent linking insulin sensitivity to blood pressure. To test this hypothesis, we studied 18 normotensive and glucose-tolerant subjects showing a wide range in insulin sensitivity as assessed with the hyperinsulinemic, euglycemic clamp technique. METHODS AND RESULTS: Blood pressure was measured by 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Videomicroscopy was used to measure skin capillary density and capillary recruitment after arterial occlusion. Skin blood flow responses after iontophoresis of acetylcholine and sodium nitroprusside were evaluated by laser Doppler flowmetry. Insulin sensitivity correlated with 24-hour systolic blood pressure (24-hour SBP; r=-0.50, P<0.05). Capillary recruitment and acetylcholine-mediated vasodilatation were strongly and positively related to insulin sensitivity (r=0.84, P<0.001; r=0.78, P<0.001, respectively), and capillary recruitment was inversely related to 24-hour SBP (r=-0.53, P<0.05). Waist-to-hip ratio showed strong associations with insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, and the measures of microvascular function but did not confound the associations between these variables. Subsequent regression analysis showed that the association between insulin sensitivity and blood pressure was not independent of the estimates of microvascular function, and part of the variation in both blood pressure (R2=38%) and insulin sensitivity (R2=71%) could be explained by microvascular function. CONCLUSIONS: Insulin sensitivity and blood pressure are associated well within the physiological range. Microvascular function strongly relates to both, consistent with a central role in linking these variables.  (+info)

Endothelin up-regulation and localization following renal ischemia and reperfusion. (5/3987)

BACKGROUND: Endothelin (ET), a potent vasoconstrictor, is known to play a role in ischemic acute renal failure. Although preproET-1 (ppET-1) mRNA is known to be up-regulated following ischemia/reperfusion injury, it has not been determined which component of the injury (ischemia or reperfusion) leads to initial gene up-regulation. Likewise, although ET-1 peptide expression has been localized in the normal kidney, its expression pattern in the ischemic kidney has not been determined. Therefore, the purpose of this study was twofold: (a) to determine whether ischemia alone or ischemia plus reperfusion is required for the up-regulation of ppET-1 mRNA to occur, and (b) to localize ET-1 peptide expression following ischemia in the rat kidney to clarify better the role of ET in the pathophysiology of ischemia-induced acute renal failure. METHODS: Male Lewis rats underwent clamping of the right renal vascular pedicle for either 30 minutes of ischemia (group 1), 60 minutes of ischemia (group 2), 30 minutes of ischemia followed by 30 minutes of reperfusion (group 3), or 60 minutes of ischemia followed by three hours of reperfusion (group 4). The contralateral kidney acted as a control. ppET-1 mRNA up-regulation and ET-1 peptide expression were examined using the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and immunohistochemistry, respectively. RESULTS: Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction yielded a control (nonischemic) value of 0.6 +/- 0.2 densitometric units (DU) of ppET-1 mRNA in the kidney. Group 1 levels (30 min of ischemia alone) were 1.8 +/- 0.4 DU, a threefold increase (P < 0.05). Group 2 levels (60 min of ischemia alone) increased almost six times above baseline, 3.5 +/- 0.2 DU (P < 0.01), whereas both group 3 and group 4 (ischemia plus reperfusion) did not experience any further significant increases in mRNA levels (1.9 +/- 0.4 DU and 2.8 +/- 0.6 DU, respectively) beyond levels in group 1 or 2 animals subjected to similar ischemic periods. ET-1 peptide expression in the ischemic kidneys was significantly increased over controls and was clearly localized to the endothelium of the peritubular capillary network of the kidney. CONCLUSIONS: Initial ET-1 gene up-regulation in the kidney occurs secondary to ischemia, but reperfusion most likely contributes to sustaining this up-regulation. The marked increase of ET-1 in the peritubular capillary network suggests that ET-induced vasoconstriction may have a pathophysiological role in ischemic acute tubular necrosis.  (+info)

Inhibition of effects of flow on potassium permeability in single perfused frog mesenteric capillaries. (6/3987)

1. We have investigated the effects of various potential inhibitors on flow-dependent K+ permeability (PK) of single perfused mesenteric microvessels in pithed frogs. 2. Neither superfusion with a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor, NG-monomethyl-L-arginine (10 or 100 micromol l-1), nor the addition of indomethacin (30 micromol l-1) to both perfusate and superfusate reduced the positive correlation between PK and flow velocity (U). 3. In the presence of agents known to raise intracellular levels of adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (noradrenaline, 8-bromo-cAMP and a combination of forskolin and rolipram) the slope of the relation between PK and U was no longer significant, so that PK was no longer flow dependent. 4. These results confirm that the flow dependence of PK is a biological process and not an artefact of measurement and suggest a role for intracellular cAMP rather than nitric oxide or prostacyclin in the flow-dependent modulation of PK in frog mesenteric microvessels.  (+info)

Polyol formation and NADPH-dependent reductases in dog retinal capillary pericytes and endothelial cells. (7/3987)

PURPOSE: Dogs fed a diet containing 30% galactose experience retinal vascular changes similar to those in human diabetic retinopathy, with selective pericyte loss as an initial lesion. In the present study the relationship among reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH)-dependent reductases, polyol formation, and flux through the polyol pathway in cultured dog retinal capillary cells were investigated. METHODS: Pericytes and endothelial cells were cultured from retina of beagle dogs. NADPH-dependent reductases were characterized by chromatofocusing after gel filtration. Sugars in cultured cells were analyzed by gas chromatography, and flux through the polyol pathway was investigated by 19F nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) with 3-fluoro-3-deoxy-D-glucose (3FG) as a substrate. The presence of aldose reductase and sorbitol dehydrogenase in these cells was examined by northern blot analysis. RESULTS: Two distinct peaks corresponding to aldose reductase and aldehyde reductase, the latter being dominant, were observed in pericytes by chromatofocusing. Culture in medium containing either 10 mM D-galactose or 30 mM D-glucose resulted in the accumulation of sugar alcohol in pericytes that was markedly reduced by aldose reductase inhibitors. 19F NMR spectra obtained from pericytes cultured for 5 days in medium containing 2 mM 3FG displayed the marked accumulation of 3-fluoro-deoxysorbitol but not 3-fluoro-deoxyfructose. No 3FG metabolism was observed in similarly cultured endothelial cells. With northern blot analysis, aldose reductase was detected in pericytes but not in endothelial cells. Sorbitol dehydrogenase was below the detectable limit in pericytes and endothelial cells. CONCLUSIONS: Aldose, aldehyde, and glyceraldehyde reductases are present in dog retinal capillary pericytes, with aldehyde reductase being the major reductase present. Polyol accumulation easily occurs in pericytes but not in endothelial cells.  (+info)

VEGF deprivation-induced apoptosis is a component of programmed capillary regression. (8/3987)

The pupillary membrane (PM) is a transient ocular capillary network, which can serve as a model system in which to study the mechanism of capillary regression. Previous work has shown that there is a tight correlation between the cessation of blood flow in a capillary segment and the appearance of apoptotic capillary cells throughout the segment. This pattern of cell death is referred to as synchronous apoptosis (Lang, R. A., Lustig, M., Francois, F., Sellinger, M. and Plesken, H. (1994) Development 120, 3395-3404; Meeson, A., Palmer, M., Calfon, M. and Lang, R. A. (1996) Development 122, 3929-3938). In the present study, we have investigated whether the cause of synchronous apoptosis might be a segmental deficiency of either oxygen or a survival factor. Labeling with the compound EF5 in a normal PM indicated no segmental hypoxia; this argued that oxygen deprivation was unlikely to be the cause of synchronous apoptosis. When rat plasma was used as a source of survival factors in an in vitro PM explant assay, inhibition of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) all but eliminated the activity of plasma in suppressing apoptosis. This argued that VEGF was an important plasma survival factor. Furthermore, inhibition of VEGF in vivo using fusion proteins of the human Flk-1/KDR receptor resulted in a significantly increased number of capillaries showing synchronous apoptosis. This provides evidence that VEGF is necessary for endothelial cell survival in this system and in addition, that VEGF deprivation mediated by flow cessation is a component of synchronous apoptosis.  (+info)

A fine mesh-like network of tiny blind-ended tubes distributed in the tissue spaces and just under the skin. The smallest lymphatic vessels which associate with capillary beds of the cardiovascular system. These are larger than vascular capillaries in diameter, but with thinner walls made of overlapping endothelial cells which allow fluid and proteins to enter, but prevent their escape. Fluid reabsorption begins in the lymph capillaries that are throughout the body near blood capillaries. Lymph capillaries are small microscopic tubes that collect extracellular fluid. The walls of lymph capillaries comprise loosely joined cells. The overlapping edges of the cells form mini-valves that allow extracellular fluid to pass into the capillary and prevent fluid from flowing back into the tissue. Unlike blood capillaries, lymph capillaries are blind-end tubes that lead away from the tissue. ...

Such behavior is not expected in uniform blood-perfused tubes, but could occur when moving red cells encounter geometrical irregularities in capillaries. From known elastic properties of the red cell membrane, a lower bound is computed for the pressure required to sustain red cell motion in irregular capillaries. This may be an underestimate of the pressure required, because it neglects the viscous resistance of the red cell membrane when it undergoes transient deformations. Simulations including membrane viscosity ...
ABSTRACT: In order to study the neonatal microcirculation, the capillary hemodynamics in skin was investigated in 43 full-term infants 2-7 days after birth. The nailfold capillaries of the thumb were visualized by means of television microscopy and the capillary blood cell velocity (CBV) was videophotometrically quantified in 107 microvessels. The skin temperature, mean arterial blood pressure, and heel puncture hematocrit were measured simultaneously to evaluate any relation with the CBV. The mean CBV in all infants was 0.38 ± 0.21 mm/s, with a range of 0.04 to 1.2 mm/s in individual capillaries. There was no correlation between CBV and skin temperature (27-33° C), mean arterial blood pressure (44-68 mm Hg), or postnatal age. However, a significant correlation was found between the log CBV and the skin prick hematocrit (r = −0.64, p | 0.001). It is concluded that the mean CBV during the 1st wk of life is not significantly different from the capillary velocity reported in adults. Normal variations
A multiple capillary analyzer allows detection of light from multiple capillaries with a reduced number of interfaces through which light must pass in detecting light emitted from a sample being analyzed, using a modified sheath flow cuvette. A linear or rectangular array of capillaries is introduced into a rectangular flow chamber. Sheath fluid draws individual sample streams through the cuvette. The capillaries are closely and evenly spaced and held by a transparent retainer in a fixed position in relation to an optical detection system. Collimated sample excitation radiation is applied simultaneously across the ends of the capillaries in the retainer. Light emitted from the excited sample is detected by the optical detection system. The retainer is provided by a transparent chamber having inward slanting end walls. The capillaries are wedged into the chamber. One sideways dimension of the chamber is equal to the diameter of the capillaries and one end to end dimension varies from, at the top of the
For centuries it has been known that wetting liquids penetrate porous materials if the pores are sufficiently small. In some cases the liquid penetration is desired, like in kitchen paper or diapers, in other systems the penetration should be minimised or avoided, like in water repellent textiles or paper printing. Either way capillary flow has been studied extensively starting from smooth to rough surfaces and from single capillaries to porous systems. However, one field, which is lacking attention is the behaviour of capillary flow in porous gels. How does a semi-solid material influence capillary flow? Possible applications could be to absorb solutes or cell solutions in porous gels with the aim to get an even distribution of those. In this thesis alginate and agarose gels are used to study capillary flow. A thorough study of the gel characteristics including rheology measurements and investigation of the microstructure using two different gelation mechanisms gave the basis to study capillary action
Recent studies have revealed that functional hyperemia is initiated in capillaries (14, 15) and that RBCs themselves can act as oxygen-sensing regulators to control capillary RBC velocity in response to local PO2 changes (15). However, the underlying mechanisms of how PO2 could modulate RBC velocity in capillaries are unknown. Experimental findings presented here implicate that deoxyHb-band 3 interactions in RBCs are the molecular switch that responds to local PO2 changes and controls RBC deformability and consequently RBC capillary velocity. Evidently, we showed that (i) while ex vivo capillary velocity and deformation of mRBC-WT and mRBC-subst 1-35 exhibited a linear relation with local PO2 changes, RBCs from transgenic mice that had enhanced or weakened deoxyHb-band 3 interactions showed capillary velocity and deformation independent of PO2. RBCs with enhanced deoxyHb-band 3 interactions showed higher capillary velocity and deformability compared to RBCs that had weakened deoxyHb-band 3 ...
A capillary gate mechanism regulates flow resistance efficiently, because pressures, flows, and turbulence are minimal in capillaries, and capillary surface area is greater than that of all larger vessels combined.(1-5) Sympathetic nervous activity releases von Willebrand Factor (VWF) from the capillary endothelium; VWF increases factor VIII activity, which generates insoluble fibrin in the capillary lumen to increase flow resistance (aka viscosity, or systemic vascular resistance). Parasympathetic nervous innervation releases nitric oxide (NO) from the capillary endothelium, which binds to Ca+, inhibits thrombin, accelerates the disintegration of insoluble fibrin, and reduces flow resistance (aka nitrergic neurogenic vasodilation) Hypoxia and hypercarbia open the capillary gate by releasing nitric oxide from the capillary endothelium.(6) The capillary gate mechanism governs cardiac output, cardiac efficiency, tissue perfusion, tissue oxygenation, and organ function. Its activity affects the ...
discrimination of different flow pattern changes within muscle. Three in vitro models were used: (i) bulk flow rate was varied within a single length of capillary tubing; (ii) at constant bulk flow, capillary volume was increased 3-fold by joining lengths of capillary in series, and compared to a single length; and (iii) at constant bulk flow, capillary volume was increased by sharing flow between a number of lengths of identical capillaries in parallel. The contrast medium for CEU was gas-filled albumin microbubbles. Pulsing interval (time) versus acoustic-intensity curves were constructed and from these, capillary volume and capillary filling rate were calculated. CEU estimates of capillary volume were not affected by changes in bulk flow. Furthermore, as CEU estimates of capillary volume increased, measures of capillary filling rate decreased, regardless of whether capillaries were connected in series or parallel. Therefore, CEU can detect a change in filling rate of the microvascular volume ...

The accession no. of the strain(s) is written on the straws and the capillary holder. The straws (2 mm in diameter) are available in different colours from A. Albrecht GmbH & Co. KG, D-88323 Aulendorf.. 3 Suspending medium and ...
Blood capillaries are under some pressure from within and from without. As a result, some fluid, whose composition will be discussed later, leaks out. If this fluid were to accumulate in tissues and organs, there would a swelling of the body called oedema.
Your capillaries are the smallest blood vessels in your body that connect arteries to veins. When these capillaries narrow or widen to quickly, the thin capillary walls can tear, and blood can seep out, giving your skin the appearance of thin red or purple lines. While these lines often are not painful, they can be displeasing in appearance, which is why treatments, such as laser treatments are used to remove them.. Broken Capillary Causes. Broken capillaries occur where the skin is the most thin or sensitive, such as the face-especially the cheeks and nose. Events such as hot weather, strong winds, a sunburn, pressure or trauma to the face or other conditions, such as rosacea, can cause broken capillaries. Dry skin also is considered more at risk for broken capillaries.. Lasers and Capillaries. For those who suffer from broken capillaries, lasers are used to deliver targeted treatment to the skin. Laser light energy is concentrated on the targeted vein. Energy is then transferred from the laser ...

Capillaries are the smallest of blood vessels. They serve to distribute oxygenated blood from arteries to the tissues of the body and to feed deoxygenated blood from the tissues back into the veins. The capillaries are thus a central component in the circulatory system, essentially between the arteries and the veins. When pink areas of skin are compressed, this causes blanching because blood is pressed out of the capillaries. The blood is the fluid in the body that contains, among other elements, the red blood cells (erythrocytes) that carry the oxygen and give the blood its red color. See also: * Blood Glossary ...

Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a novel vasoconstricting and cardiotonic peptide that is synthesized by the vascular endothelium. Bovine aortic endothelial cells which secrete ET in vitro lack membrane receptor sites for the peptide. Endothelial cells from rat brain microvessels that do not secrete ET in vitro express large amounts of high-affinity receptors for 125I-labelled ET-1 (Kd 0.8 nM). The ET receptor is recognized by sarafotoxin S6b and the different ET peptides with the following order of potency: ET-1 (Kd 0.5 nM) approximately equal to ET-2 (Kd 0.7 nM) greater than sarafotoxin S6b (Kd 27 nM) greater than ET-3 (Kd 450 nM). This structure-activity relationship is different from those found in vascular smooth muscle cells, renal cells and cardiac cells. ET-1 stimulates DNA synthesis in brain capillary endothelial cells. It is more potent than basic fibroblast growth factor. The action of ET on endothelial cells from microvessels involves phosphatidylinositol hydrolysis and intracellular Ca2+ ...

What are broken capillaries?. Well for starters, the term broken is actually inaccurate. Broken capillaries are caused when you get a bruise from injury to the skin.. The little red blood vessels that are found in different areas of the face (most commonly the nose, cheeks and chin) are actually permanently dilated capillaries. These are common in lighter, fairer skin types of western European descent (Irish, Scottish). If you have visible capillaries around the corners of the nose (little red, squiggle marks) and nowhere else, these may not be the same - these can be caused simply from blowing your nose from colds and allergies that put pressure on the capillaries.. Where do they come from?. Capillary walls are very elastic, and through repeated dilating from hot showers, spicy foods, microdermabrasion, intense exercise, alcohol, or merely just genetics, they no longer have the ability to contract, remaining visibly enlarged…. Why the difference in colors?. These capillaries form in two ...

Author(s): Tran, Edward Duc | Abstract: Recent evidence suggests that endothelial apoptosis may be a mechanism for capillary rarefaction in hypertensives. The objective of this study is to examine the early phase of cell apoptosis and capillary blood flow in single capillaries of the rat mesentery in the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) and its normotensive control, the Wistar-Kyoto (WKYs) rat. Since hypertension in the SHR is critically dependent on glucocorticoids, the animals were treated with a synthetic glucocorticoid, dexamethasone (DEX), by intraperitoneal injection and by superfusion. Capillaries with single file flow of cells in mesentery were observed in-vivo at high resolution during a period of that leads to permanent stasis without central pressure reduction. Propidium iodide (PI) was used as a marker to detect apoptosis. Continuous observation of apoptotic cells showed that permanent stasis in capillaries is initiated by the entrapment of leukocytes at the location of an endothelial
Tumors cells need a rich blood supply in order to grow and metastasize. Angiogenesis (Angio-blood, genesis-creation) is the process by which new blood vessels, called capillaries are formed. Capillaries are lined with endothelial cells. Normal angiogenesis occurs under very tight physiological regulation when stimulators and inhibitors work in balance with each other. Normally the proliferation…
Red blood cells in a capillary (human central nervous system), coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM). Red blood cells (RBCs), or erythrocytes, are the most common type of blood cell in vertebrates. They are involved in delivering oxygen to the body tissue. RBCs take up oxygen in the lungs or gills and release it into tissues while squeezing through the bodys capillaries. The cytoplasm of RBCs is rich in haemoglobin, an iron-containing biomolecule that can bind oxygen and is responsible for the red color of the cells. The cell membrane is composed of proteins and lipids and this structure provides properties essential for physiological cell function (deformability and stability) while traversing the circulatory system, especially the capillary network. In humans, mature RBCs are flexible and oval biconcave disks. Capillaries are the small blood vessels that make up the microcirculation of the human body.

Capillaries are composed of a microscopic tubule made from a continuous layer of endothelial cells surrounded by a layer of connective tissue for support. In arteries, the contractile outer layer is formed by vascular smooth muscle cells. These smooth muscle cells contribute to regulating blood pressure in the capillaries. Capillaries also contain a ring-like sphincter of smooth muscle at their opening which regulates blood flow into the capillaries.. Capillary beds are optimized for blood/tissue exchange of nutrients, gases (such as oxygen) and migrating immune cells. The smaller diameter of capillaries and the slower blood flow through them means that nearly all of the blood comes into contact with the walls of the tubule. Capillary endothelial cells thus have greater access to circulating cytokines than the endothelial cells of the larger arteries and veins. During inflammation, elevated levels of IL-6, like TNF, induce vascular relaxation, leakiness of plasma fluids, and increased migration ...
Visible, cracked capillaries, visible veins, painful and swollen feet - are the problems that most women have. Primarily, this is an aesthetic problem for each of us, but, nevertheless, it is a sign that the blood vessels are weakened, mostly because of external factors, and partly because of the Internal.. The more I searched, I could not find a specific cause. I would say that this is a problem like cellulite, the causes are different with each woman. In fact, I do not know a woman who does not have burst capillaries on her legs. I had that problem for 20 years. I follow whats going on, and I see that the capillaries are not spreading quickly, but they have spread significantly in the last 3 months, because I have been standing a lot and have walked into some kind of medical flip-flops, which I highly doubt are good.. Standing, sitting and uncomfortable shoes with too high or low heels will only accelerate the process of varicose veins. Pregnancy also, in my case everything started during the ...
An easily-assembled, heat-resistant connector for releasably joining end portions of two capillary tubes in end-to-end fashion for use in chromatography without interrupting fluid flow or interfering with chromatographic results, comprises a cylindrical sleeve which has a bore which tapers toward a center point to form press-fit seals with the tips of two capillary tubes. A first ferrule is mounted on the end portion of a first capillary tube, and a second ferrule is mounted on the end portion of a second capillary tube. A jacket surrounds and contains the sleeve, and a first adjustment screw mounted on the jacket pushes against the first ferrule to deform the ferrule into sealing contact with the outside surface of the first capillary tube and with the inside surface of the sleeve. A second adjustment screw mounted on the jacket pushes against the second ferrule to deform the ferrule into sealing contact with the outside surface of the second capillary tube and with the inside surface of the

We present adaptive micro-scale Particle Image Velocimetry (μPIV) technique for visualization of the capillary network blood flow microcirculation. The main idea of our method is a centering of the interrogation regions (IR) of the μPIV technique via capillary network masks. These masks were obtained by the algorithm of Niblack local binarization of the capillary network images for the each frame. Due to the inhomogeneous of red blood cells (RBCs) distribution, we have summarized the masks across a whole series of masks. The blood flow velocity map was measured within the limits of the resulting the mask. We illustrate step-by-step the blood flow velocity measurement method and we reconstruct velocity map for chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) of chicken embryo ...

OBJECTIVE: To clarify the morphological basis of the limited coronary reserve in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). BACKGROUND: Some of the symptoms in Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), such as chest pain, dyspnea and arrhythmia, may be explained by myocardial ischemia. Many patients with HCM are known to exhibit these symptoms in the absence of atherosclerosis in the major coronary vessels. Decreased myocardial perfusion has been demonstrated in HCM, however, little is known about the myocardial capillary morphology in this disease. METHODS: Using immunohistochemistry and morphometry, we analysed capillaries and cardiomyocytes in myectomy specimens from 5 patients with HCM with moderate hypertrophy and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and in 5 control hearts. RESULTS: The number of capillaries per cardiomyocyte (p,0.009) and number of capillaries per cardiomyocyte area unit, reflecting cardiomyocyte mass (p=0.009), were lower in individuals with HCM, i.e. indicating loss of ...

AU - Wang, Ruikang K.. PY - 2011. Y1 - 2011. N2 - Abnormal microcirculation within meninges is common in many neurological diseases. There is a need for an imaging method that is capable of visualizing functional meningeal microcirculations alone, preferably decoupled from the cortical blood flow. Optical microangiography (OMAG) is a recently developed label-free imaging method capable of producing 3D images of dynamic blood perfusion within micro-circulatory tissue beds at an imaging depth up to ~2 mm, with an unprecedented imaging sensitivity to the blood flow at ~4 μm/s. In this study, we demonstrate the utility of ultra-high sensitive OMAG in imaging the detailed blood flow distributions, at a capillary level resolution, within meninges and cortex in mice with the cranium left intact. The results indicate that ...
Pulmonary capillary blood flow was measured in man during slow breathing by a modification of the body plethysmograph technique for measuring N2O uptake. In seated subjects breathing slowly, flow was significantly higher during inhalation. In supine subjects whose legs were raised, the difference between inhalation and exhalation was not significant. Flow was usually greater during tidal inhalation than exhalation, but there was considerable variation. The changes in flow were not directly related to intrathoracic pressures or lung volumes. The results suggest that it is the amount and pressure of the venous blood available for aspiration into the thorax that influences pulmonary capillary blood flow during the course of a respiratory cycle.. ...
Reliable human in vitro blood-brain barrier (BBB) models suitable for high-throughput screening are urgently needed in early drug discovery and development for assessing the ability of promising bioactive compounds to overcome the BBB. To establish an improved human in vitro BBB model, we compared four currently available and well characterized immortalized human brain capillary endothelial cell lines, hCMEC/D3, hBMEC, TY10, and BB19, with respect to barrier tightness and paracellular permeability. Co-culture systems using immortalized human astrocytes (SVG-A cell line) and immortalized human pericytes (HBPCT cell line) were designed with the aim of positively influencing barrier tightness. Tight junction (TJ) formation was assessed by transendothelial electrical resistance (TEER) measurements using a conventional epithelial voltohmmeter (EVOM) and an automated CellZscope system which records TEER and cell layer capacitance (CCL) in real-time. Paracellular permeability was assessed using two fluorescent

Purpose: : It has been reported that inner retinal circulation flow rates increase in response to visual stimulation as measured by the blue field entopic phenomenon and laser Doppler flowmetry. However, an objective measure of stimulus-evoked flow has not been observed in individual capillaries. Here we use an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AOSLO) to directly measure hematic cell velocities in retinal capillaries in response to visual stimulation. Methods: : An AOSLO was used to image parafoveal capillary beds in anesthetized macaque monkeys. The confocal image plane was focused on capillary strata in proximity to the ganglion cell and retinal nerve fiber layers. Movies of retinal reflectance using a 794 nm super luminescent diode were collected at a rate of 25Hz for 120 seconds. Within the acquisition period, a stimulus was presented using an argon/krypton laser tuned to 488 nm (40µW at the cornea). The scanning raster of the AOSLO provided a bright, visible temporal flicker ...
BioNutrients: The crew performed a hydration and agitation for the BioNutrients experiment and started the 48 hour incubation at 30 deg C. BioNutrients demonstrates a technology that enables on-demand production of human nutrients during long-duration space missions. The process uses engineered microbes, like yeast, to generate carotenoids from an edible media to supplement potential vitamin losses from food that is stored for very long periods. Specially designed storage/growth packets are intermittently activated by astronauts over a 5-year period, then frozen and returned to Earth for examination.. Capillary Structures: The crew performed a water refill and camera/flash battery exchange for the ongoing Capillary Structures Evaporation Science run. Current life-support systems on the ISS require special equipment to separate liquids and gases, including rotating or moving devices that could cause contamination if they break or fail. The Capillary Structures investigation studies a new method ...
Partial exhaustion of autoregulation can also cause a decrease in CFR in IDC for which there are 3 putative mechanisms, all of them based on compensatory vasodilation at rest. First, the decrease in MCD and capillary D result in increased capillary resistance that is compensated by some arteriolar and venular vasodilation to maintain normal resting coronary flow (Online Appendix). Second, increased wall stress in IDC leads to increased myocardial oxygen demand that is met by increased coronary flow via arteriolar and venular vasodilation. Finally, the central aortic (and arterial pressure) may be low in end-stage IDC, which could also cause arteriolar and venular dilation in order to maintain a constant myocardial capillary hydrostatic pressure.. CFR is related to the coronary driving pressure (ΔP, difference between mean aortic and right atrial pressures) according to the formula CFR = ΔP/(Qr × Rmin) where Qr is resting coronary flow and Rmin is the MVR during hyperemia. ΔP may decrease if ...
In 1996, Kirk Lancaster and David Siegel investigated the existence and behavior of radial limits at a corner of the boundary of the domain of solutions of capillary and other prescribed mean curvature problems with contact angle boundary data. They provided an example of a capillary surface in a unit disk D which has no radial limits at (0, 0) is an element of partial derivative D. In their example, the contact angle, gamma, cannot be bounded away from zero and pi. Here we consider a domain Omega with a convex corner at (0, 0) and find a capillary surface z = f (x, y) in Omega x R which has no radial limits at (0, 0) is an element of partial derivative D such that gamma is bounded away from 0 and pi ...
Detailed analysis of the immunological pathways leading to robust vaccine responses has become possible with the application of systems biology, including transcriptomic analysis. Venous blood is usually obtained for such studies but others have obtained capillary blood (e.g. finger-prick). Capillary samples are practically advantageous, especially in children.The aim of this study was to compare gene expression profiles in venous and capillary blood before, 12h and 24h after vaccination with 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide or trivalent inactivated seasonal influenza vaccines.Gene expression at baseline was markedly different between venous and capillary samples, with 4940 genes differentially expressed, and followed a different pattern of changes after vaccination. At baseline, multiple pathways were upregulated in venous compared to capillary blood, including transforming growth factor-beta receptor signalling and toll-like receptor cascades. After vaccination with the influenza vaccine, there
Blood moves from the heart to arteries, which branch and narrow into smaller arteries, and then branch more into capillaries. After oxygen has been moved to the tissue, capillaries join and widen to become small veins and then widen more to become veins, which return blood to the heart. The capillary bed is the network of capillaries supplying an organ. The more metabolically active the cells, the more capillaries it will require to supply nutrients and carry away waste products. Special arteries connect between arterioles and venules and are important in bypassing the flow of blood through the capillaries. True capillaries come from mainly from metarterioles and provide movement between cells and the circulation. The width of 8 μm forces the red blood cells to partly fold into bullet-like shapes in order to bypass them in single file. Precapillary muscles are rings of smooth muscles at the start of true capillaries that handle blood flow into true capillaries and control blood flow through a ...

Apparatus and methods for non-invasively determining the cardiac output or pulmonary capillary blood flow of a patient using partial re-breathing techniques. The apparatus includes a substantially instantaneously adjustable deadspace volume for accommodating differences in sizes or breathing capacities of various patients. The apparatus may be constructed of inexpensive elements, including one or more two-way valves, which render the apparatus very simple to use and inexpensive so that the unit may be employed as a disposable product. The method of the invention includes estimating the cardiac output or pulmonary capillary blood flow of a patient based on partial pressure of alveolar CO2 rather than on the partial pressure of end tidal CO2, as previously practiced. A computer program for calculating the cardiac output or pulmonary capillary blood flow of a patient is also disclosed.
Capillary electrophoresis (CE) is a separation technique based on the differential migration of charged species in an electric field. The separation of proteins is not always possible since they tend to adsorb onto the capillary surface. Herein, cationic surfactants are employed to improve cationic protein separations in a simple and inexpensive way. Surfactants such as didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB) adsorb onto fused silica capillaries to form semi-permanent bilayer coatings. However, initially such coatings had to be regenerated between runs to maintain efficiency and reproducibility. My studies demonstrate that reducing the capillary diameter and the volume of buffer flushed through the capillary enhance the coating stability. Chemical factors such as ionic strength and nature of the buffer anion, which decrease the critical micelle concentration (cmc) of the surfactant, improve the coating stability. The stability of the surfactant coating can also be increased with increasing the ...

Using Brownian dynamics simulations, density functional theory, and analytical perturbation theory we study the collapse of a patch of interfacially trapped, micrometer-sized colloidal particles, driven by long-ranged capillary attraction. This attraction is formally analogous to two-dimensional (2D) screened Newtonian gravity with the capillary length ˆλ as the screening length. Whereas the limit ˆλ→∞ corresponds to the global collapse of a self-gravitating fluid, for finite ˆλ we predict theoretically and observe in simulations a ringlike density peak at the outer rim of a disclike patch, moving as an inbound shock wave. Possible experimental realizations are discussed. ...

The complex interaction between an ultrasound-driven microbubble and an enclosing capillary microvessel is investigated by means of a coupled, multi-domain numerical model using the finite volume formulation. This system is of interest in the study of transient blood-brain barrier disruption (BBBD) for drug delivery applications. The compliant vessel structure is incorporated explicitly as a distinct domain described by a dedicated physical model. Red blood cells (RBCs) are taken into account as elastic solids in the blood plasma. We report the temporal and spatial development of transmural pressure (Ptm) and wall shear stress (WSS) at the luminal endothelial interface, both of which are candidates for the yet unknown mediator of BBBD. The explicit introduction of RBCs shapes the Ptm and WSS distributions and their derivatives markedly. While the peak values of these mechanical wall parameters are not affected considerably by the presence of RBCs, a pronounced increase in their spatial gradients ...
Endoneurial capillary abnormalities have been assessed quantitatively in sural nerve biopsies from diabetic patients with different syndromes of sensory polyneuropathy: chronic painful neuropathy, newly presenting painful neuropathy, and painless neuropathy associated with neurotrophic foot ulceration. Comparisons were made with age-matched nondiabetic control subjects. The diabetic groups showed no abnormality in capillary density or mean endoneurial area per fascicle. Compared with control subjects, all diabetic patients had an increase in mean capillary diameter, capillary wall thickness, and outer tunic (basement membrane and pericytes) thickness. The increase in wall thickness was most pronounced in patients with painless neuropathy (200%) and less marked in similar patients with painful neuropathy (100%). The pericyte volume fraction of the outer tunic was reduced in all diabetic patients, implying that basement membrane hypertrophy and reduplication were responsible for outer tunic ...
Broken capillaries are visible blood vessels on the surface of the skin. They are usually harmless but causing a cosmetic disturbance. Telangiectasia is commonly associated with rosacea. Common hereditary causes are long term use of topical steroids, sun damage, ageing etc. We focused on facial broken capillaries mainly due to sun damage or rosacea and can be corrected easily with medical treatment ...
The properties of borosilicate glass make it the most popular material among researchers for the fabrication of electrodes and micro-pipettes. Its low softening temperature combined with its mechanical strength, chemical durability, high electrical resistivity, and its ability to withstand thermal stress, make these capillaries the most widely used in the world. Clark Borosilicate Capillaries are offered in a variety of diameters and wall thickness (standard or thin walled) with or without an inner filament. They are available in fused multi-barrel configurations, as well as in Theta style. Single barrel glass is available in 75 mm (3 in), 100 mm (4 in) and 150 mm (6 in) lengths.
Capillary cell outer membranes deploy an array of different receptors designed to attach choreographed immune arsenal into interstitial space staging areas for removal of inflammatory breach. Once attached, neutrophils, inducer T lymphocytes participate in one arm of breach containment while immunoglobulins and complement participate in the other arm. Together these two arms are used definitively to contain and eliminate breach through a process known as opsonization, where helper T lymphocytes, monocytes and macrophages engulf inflammatory residues and break them down into smaller molecules to be recycled or removed as waste. The successful removal enables capillary cells to downward flux outer membrane permeability thereby shifting mitochondrial combsution to mitric xoide which is the quality assurance gas of capillary cellular rejuvenation. al other positive benfits are passed onto the intersital space and endorgan on the basis of thsi capillary cell mitochondiral combustion swing.. ...
Transcytosis is a type of transcellular transport in which various macromolecules are transported across the interior of a cell. Macromolecules are captured in vesicles on one side of the cell, drawn across the cell, and ejected on the other side. Examples of macromolecules transported include IgA, transferrin, and insulin. While transcytosis is most commonly observed in cells of an epithelium, the process is also present elsewhere. Blood capillaries are a well-known site for transcytosis, though it occurs in other cells, including neurons, osteoclasts and M cells of the intestine. The regulation of transcytosis varies greatly due to the many different tissues in which this process is observed. Various tissue specific mechanisms of transcytosis have been identified. Brefeldin A, a commonly used inhibitor of ER to Golgi apparatus transport, has been shown to inhibit transcytosis in dog kidney cells which provided the first clues as to the nature of transcytosis regulation. Transcytosis in dog ...
Eseja: Discovering Sickle Cell Anemia. When blood capillaries are clogged, it can lead to many types of problems, depending upon where the blockage occurs. The
The tielcz stainings revealed up-regulated TIE1 expression in PDGF-B −/− brain capillary endothelium compared with that in PDGF-B +/+ and +/− embryos (Fig. 4). TIE1 up-regulation was also seen in capillaries in the PDGF-B −/− lung, heart, and adipose tissue, that is, at sites where pericyte loss was noticed (14). At other locations such as in small arterial endothelium and in capillary plexa, TIE1 expression was indistinguishable in PDGF-B −/−, +/−, and +/+ embryos [Fig. 4 and (14)].. Our data show that pericytes depend on PDGF-B for their development. PDGF-Rβ is expressed in developing pericytes. Without PDGF-B, pericytes fail to develop in capillaries formed through angiogenesis. Pericytes originate from progenitors in arterial walls and vascular plexa and migrate along capillary sprouts that express PDGF-B. Thus, PDGF-B stimulates PDGF-Rβ-positive vascular wall progenitors, which may result in both migration and proliferation. It is less likely that pericytes develop in situ ...
Due to the large surface area of the capillary network, all extra-vascular pulmonary fluid has traditionally been thought to result from pathological fluid movement across the capillary endothelium. In this model, fluid leaking from capillaries is drawn by negative interstitial pressure to the extra-alveolar interstitium, and moves into alveoli only when interstitial pressure reaches some critical value which forces fluid across the alveolar epithelium [1]. However, there is considerable evidence from animal models to suggest that extra-vascular pulmonary fluid may result from fluid flux across arteries or veins as well as capillaries. Rat pulmonary venules are more permeable than capillaries when edema is induced with alpha-naphthylthiourea [2]. Arteries have been shown to be the primary source of extra-vascular fluid in models of hypoxic pulmonary edema [3]. Under conditions of increased vascular pressure in excised or in situ dog lungs, fluid movement across extra-alveolar vessels accounts ...
Vascular recruitment is the increase in the number of perfused capillaries in response to a stimulus. I.e., the more you exercise regularly, the more oxygen can reach your muscles. Vascular recruitment may also be called capillary recruitment. The term «vascular recruitment» or «capillary recruitment» usually refers to the increase in the number perfused capillaries in skeletal muscle in response to a stimulus. The most important stimulus in humans is regular exercise. Vascular recruitment in skeletal muscle is thought to enhance the capillary surface area for oxygen exchange and decrease the oxygen diffusion distance. Other stimuli are possible. Insulin can act as a stimulus for vascular recruitment in skeletal muscle. This process may also improve glucose delivery to skeletal muscle by increasing the surface area for diffusion. That insulin can act in this way has been proposed based on increases in limb blood flow and skeletal muscle blood volume which occurred after hyperinsulinemia. The ...

A cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) is a collection of small blood vessels (capillaries) in the central nervous system that is enlarged and irregular in structure. In CCM, the walls of the capillaries are thinner than normal, less elastic, and are likely to leak. Cavernous malformations can happen anywhere in the body. They most commonly produce symptoms when they are found in the brain and spinal cord. ...more ...
To test for antimicrobial resistance, the authors loaded the capillary tubes with increasing concentrations of the antibiotics ciprofloxacin and trimethoprim. Using a growth indicator medium (resazurin), which changes colour from blue to pink in the presence of bacterial growth, it was possible to determine the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of the bacterial sample, i.e. the lowest concentration of antibiotic in which the bacterium could not grow. When the authors tested clinical isolates, they found several samples were able to grow in all concentrations of antibiotic, suggesting antibiotic resistance. Using capillary flow technology, the authors were able to miniaturise classical microbiological assays for the identification of particular bacteria and detection of drug resistance. In their proof of concept study, the authors inoculate liquid growth medium with bacterial colonies from agar plates, which may produce different results compared with clinical samples. In addition, ...

N2 - Downhill skiing in the elderly increases maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and carbohydrate handling, and produces muscle hypertrophy. We hypothesized that adjustments of the cellular components of aerobic glucose combustion in knee extensor muscle, and cardiovascular adjustments, would increase in proportion to VO2max. Nineteen healthy elderly subjects (age 67.5±2.9 years) who completed 28.5 days of guided downhill skiing over 3 months were assessed for anthropometric variables, cardiovascular parameters (heart rate, hematocrit), VO2max, and compared with controls (n=20). Biopsies of vastus lateralis muscle were analyzed for capillary density and expression of respiratory chain markers (NDUFA9, SDHA, ...
In the circulatory system, the heart pumps blood throughout the body via arteries, then smaller arterioles and finally through tiny capillaries, from which molecules are exchanged with cells and the rest of the body. Due to the pressure of the blood, much plasma is pushed out also. The endothelial walls of the capillaries are just one cell thick and the spaces between them allow fluid to pass, but not the larger erythrocytes (RBCs). Oxygen and glucose necessary for cellular respiration, as well as other molecules, also may exit. We have seen in a preceding paragraph the conditions under which oxygen may be absorbed or released by hemoglobin in the erythrocytes.lymph nodes. Outside the capillaries, the escaped fluid and molecules constitute the extracellular or interstitial fluid. It is composed of WBCs, including lymphocytes, some hormones, glucose and other molecules, such as proteins and lipids. Much of it is reabsorbed, but some remains outside. One of the jobs of the lymphatic system is to ...
whorled pulmonary artery. In the centre are the tertiary bulgings approach each other, but they are separated from their neighbours by mesodermal stroma. Capillaries are numerous at this age and are situated in contact with the cells lining the tertiary bulgings, but many free corpuscles are visible. In some situations they are seen amongst the cells lining the bronchial branches. This is no doubt due to the section having passed in a position where a capillary or a free corpuscle lies between two tertiary diverticula. At 16 cm. the lumina of the primary and secondary bronchial branches are much larger than in previous sections, but the lining cells form a complete and continuous single layer. There is an increase in the formation of tertiary branches. As yet there is no change in the vascular arrangement, many capillaries and free blood cells occurring in the same field. The histological appearance of lungs from foetuses of 17-18 cm. length much more nearly resembles that of the post-foetal ...

Here, we are the first to show that microRNAs contribute to modulation of BBB function. We assessed microRNA expression in brain endothelial cells treated either with proinflammatory cytokines known to impair BBB function or with astrocyte-released factors that can strengthen BBB function. We found that while a large number of microRNAs were downregulated in brain endothelial cells with impaired BBB function, strengthening BBB function was generally associated with increased microRNA expression. Thus, we identified a microRNA signature that is central in the regulation of the balance between a tight and leaky BBB.. In our study, the expression of miR-125a-5p and many other microRNAs were regulated in human brain endothelial cells exposed to astrocyte factors. Importantly, brain capillaries are surrounded by and closely associated with the perivascular endfeet of astrocytes and there is now strong evidence that astrocytes can induce many BBB features, leading to tighter junctions (physical ...

We construct examples of nonparametric surfaces z = h(x, y) of zero mean curvature which satisfy contact angle boundary conditions in a cylinder in R3 over a convex domain with corners. When the contact angles for two adjacent walls of the cylinder differ by more than −2 , where 2 is the opening angle between the walls, the (bounded) solution h is shown to be discontinuous at the corresponding corner. This is exactly the behavior predicted by the Concus-Finn conjecture. These examples currently constitute the largest collection of capillary surfaces for which the validity of the Concus-Finn conjecture is known and, in particular, provide examples for all contact angle data satisfying the condition above for opening angles 2 2 ( /2 ...
Any vein in your body is definitely a varicose vein, but the most common incidents are noticed in all those blood vessels that happen to be topic locations to greatest anxiety and pressure; like individuals who are from the thighs and feet. Varicose veins are gnarled, swollen veins identified near to your skins surface area. They generally occur as a result of boost in pressure on the certain vein which basically twists them. Prior to we attempt and be familiar with the varicose veins especially, it is in reality important for people like us to learn the need of veins and arteries from the human body. The veins and also the arterial blood vessels are certainly the veins, which bring near to blood vessels inside the man body.. Since the centre is continually pumped, it transmits bloodstream during the entire body from the arteries. The arteries continue to keep branching into much more compact vessels, till the circulatory system goes into capillaries. The wall surface areas of capillaries are ...
Discussion. The present study demonstrated the functional involvement of SR-BI in the uptake of HDL-associated α-tocopherol by retinal capillary endothelial cells using an in vitro inner BRB model, TR-iBRB2 cells. Although the uptake process of fat-soluble micronutrients like vitamin E was assumed to be passive diffusion across the plasma membrane, recent reports have proposed SR-BI-mediated transport of α-tocopherol in the brain capillary endothelial cells and enterocytes [18,19,21]. In this study, [14C]α-tocopherol-HDL uptake by TR-iBRB2 cells exhibited a time-dependent increase and did not reach steady-state at least for 90 min, suggesting that, for the most part [14C]α-tocopherol-HDL uptake by TR-iBRB2 cells depends on influx mechanism(s). [14C]α-tocopherol-HDL uptake by TR-iBRB2 cells was reduced by 88% for 90 min at 4 °C compared with that at 37 °C (Figure 1A). This suggests the involvement of an energy-dependent carrier-mediated process, rather than passive diffusion. In turn, ...
A blood vessel is a tube that carries blood in the circulatory system. Blood vessels that take blood away from the heart are arteries. Blood vessels that take blood back to the heart are veins. Capillaries are between veins and arteries and they supply tissue with blood. The heart plus all of the blood vessels in the body together are called the circulatory system. Blood is moved by the pumping of the heart and carries oxygen to the tissues. The expansion of blood vessels is called vasodilation, it helps the body to get rid of heat energy (vas- in Latin means container or vessel[1]). The constriction of blood vessels is called vasoconstriction, it prevents the body from losing warmth. There are 100,000 km (60,000 miles) of blood vessels in an adult human body.[2] Growing new blood vessels is called angiogenesis. ...
Introduction. The cardiovascular and lymphatic system 1. Briefly describe the cardiovascular system. Include the structures within the system and their functions. Label diagrams of the heart and the major blood vessels. The cardiovascular system consists of the heart and a network of blood vessels that take blood to and from the heart. The heart is the main force behind the blood flow. The vessels consist of arteries, veins and capillaries. Arteries carry oxygenated blood that is rich in oxygen, to the organs and tissues of the body. Capillaries are very fine thin-walled through which exchange of materials between the blood and tissues occur. The vein usually carries de- oxygenated blood back towards the heart, from where it is pumped to the lungs. The Heart This is a muscular pumping organ that maintains blood circulation, and its usually equipped with valves to prevent backward flow. The art has four chambers consisting of two relatively thin-walled atria (auricles), which receive blood, and ...
As we can judge from our observations, in microscopic studies of the liver of fetuses and newborns who died from hemolytic disease due to a serological conflict, the fading of the tissue pattern, the divergence of the liver beams, the expansion of venous vessels and capillaries and filling them with pale-colored erythrocytes come to the fore. among which single nuclear red blood cells are visible. In many places in the vessels are fresh blood clots. Hepatic cells are swollen, spherically swollen, their nuclei are weakly colored, the contours of the cells are unclear. Around the numerous dilated capillaries are small islands of hematopoiesis. In the cells of the liver beams, in the lumen of the vessels, as well as in their walls, abundant deposits of derivatives of the blood pigment are visible. Some of them give characteristic reactions to iron (hemosiderin). The bile ducts, especially intralobular ones, are filled with bile and greatly dilated. In children of the late neonatal period, fibrous ...
