SLIT3–ROBO4 activation promotes vascular network formation in human engineered tissue and angiogenesis in vivo
(Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, 2013-11-01)
Successful implantation and long-term survival of engineered tissue grafts hinges on adequate vascularization of the implant. Endothelial cells are essential for patterning vascular structures, but they require supportive ...
Builders and Blocks: Engineering Blood Vessels with Stem Cells
Back in 2001, when we first began studying how regenerative cells (stem cells or more mature progenitor cells) enhance blood vessel growth, our group as well as many of our colleagues focused on one specific type of blood ...
