Sample text

TM is also expressed by other cells types such as keratinocytes, osteoblasts and macrophages (Boffa and Karmochkine, 1998). 3 Simplified representation of coagulation and fibrinolytic processes endothelial cells produce different molecules important in the pathway of coagulation (white part in the schema) and fibrinolysis (highllighted part in the schema). Tissue factor (TF), tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) and von Willebrand factor (vWF) are important in coagulation, while thrombomodulin (TM), tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA), urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) play a role in fibrinolysis.

ICAM-2 is mainly expressed by endothelial cells and is not dependent on cytokine regulation. Endothelial cells respond to interleukin-1 and tumour necrosis factor also by upregulating the expression of VCAM-1. These three adhesion molecules interact with neutrophils, monocytes, lymphocytes and natural killer cells through interaction with the b2-family of integrins such as leukocyte function associated antigen-1 (LFA-1), membraneactivated complex-1 (Mac-1) and very late antigen-4 (VLA-4). Mucosal vascular addressin cell adhesion molecule-1 (MAdCAM-1) is preferentially expressed on endothelial cells in intestinal mucosa, submucosa and Peyer’s patches and plays an important role in leukocyte homing to the mucosal immune compartment.

3 Endothelial cell adhesion and interactions Endothelial cells have an important function in the interaction with each other and with a large variety of other cells, among which are pericytes, smooth muscle cells and leukocytes, as well as with the extracellular matrix. To accomplish these functions endothelial cells are equipped with a variety of different adhesion molecules. Endothelial cell–cell interactions Cell–cell-interactions are important for the regulation of tissue integrity, and the generation of barriers between different tissues and body compartments.
