About this book

This volume discusses the latest tools, techniques, and animal models designed to study the processes of lymphatic vascular formation in vivo and in vitro and its functions in health and disease. The chapters in the book cover topics such as genetics lineage tracing of lymphatic endothelial cells in mice; characterization of zebrafish facial lymphatics; imaging lymphatics in mouse lungs; effects of fluid shear stress of lymphatic endothelial cells; and single cell mRNA sequencing of the mouse brain vasculature. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Lymphangiogenesis: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource to aid researchers with applying new approaches to answer their questions in this developing field.
