Endothelium and Cardiovascular Diseases: Vascular Biology and Clinical Syndromes provides an in-depth examination of the role of endothelium and endothelial dysfunction in normal vascular function, and in a broad spectrum of clinical syndromes, from atherosclerosis, to cognitive disturbances and eclampsia. The endothelium is a major participant in the pathophysiology of diseases, such as. Focusing on functional morphology of endocardial endothelium (EE), this text reviews the embryological development and comparative morphology of the EE and discusses EE cell structure. 1.

Paracrine and autocrine regulation of cardiac function by "endothelial" mediators is becoming important both physiologically and pathophysiologically. This volume brings the researcher completely up to date with all aspects of endothelial regulation and cardiac function. Endocardial Endothelial Modulation of Myocardial.

Abbreviations EE --endocardial endothelium PECAM-1 --platelet-endothelial adhesion molecule-1 TRP --transient receptor potential ATPase --adenosine triphosphatase Introduction The cardiovascular system is lined with endothelium, a continuous single-layer flaked epithelium, forming a cobblestone-like layer on the surface of the tunica intima of. The endocardial endothelium may also act as a kind of blood–heart barrier (analogous to the blood–brain barrier), thus controlling the ionic composition of the extracellular fluid in which the.
Endocardial endothelial cells (EECs) constitute an important component of the heart. These cells form a monolayer that covers the cavities of the right (EECRs) and left (EECLs) ventricles. They play an important role in cardiac excitation–contraction coupling via their secretion of cardioactive factors such as neuropeptide Y (NPY).Cited by: 3. Development of the Endocardium Ian S.

Basic electrophysiological properties of cultured endocardial endothelial (EE) cells from the porcine right ventricle were studied by the conventional whole-cell patch-clamp technique. In isotonic conditions, the major membrane current in resting EE cells was an inwardly rectifying K-current (I-K) responsible for the negative value of the resting potential ( to mV).Cited by: 1.
