Clonal Expansion of Endothelial Cells

Clonal Expansion of Endothelial Cells

Clonal Expansion of Endothelial Cells Contributes to Ischemia-Induced Neovascularization Vascularization is critical to maintain organ function. Outgrowth and clonal expansion of endothelial cells (ECs) has been documented in vitro, however, the contribution of...

Professor Stellos received 1.5 Mio funding of the European Research Council to study the regulation and function of RNA modifications in cardiovascular disease. This is the third ERC start up grant that was granted to members of the Institute for Cardiovascular...
lncRNA HypERlnc Regulates Pericyte Function

lncRNA HypERlnc Regulates Pericyte Function

Pericytes are mural cells that contribute to vessel maturation and control endothelial barrier function. Despite their pivotal role in the vascular system, knowledge is sparse on molecular regulatory mechanisms of pericyte cell biology. Here, we show for the first...
