Abstract

One of the essential aspects of an intact blood vessel is the relationship existing between the endothelial cell layer and the underlying components of the basement membrane. These cell-matrix interactions take on particular significance in the case of damage to the endothelium, for example, in the course of inflammation or tumour cell invasion. The need to understand more about these interactions has been highlighted by the recent endeavours to “seed” vascular prostheses with endothelial cells prior to implantation.
