The use of Cultured Endothelial Cells in the Study of Platelet-Vessel Wall Interactions

  • Helen A. Bull
Part of the The Bloomsbury Series in Clinical Science book series (BLOOMSBURY)


It is now well recognised that the vascular endothelial cell is a multifunctional cell as well as being structurally unique. It is a selective permeability barrier, allowing passage, by a variety of routes, to the nutrient requirements of the underlying cells and tissues. It is actively involved in haemostasis, synthesising a variety of molecules as listed in Table 3.1. It is structurally unique because it has a non-thrombogenic luminal surface and a thrombogenic, adhesive abluminal surface.
