Title:Morph or move? How distinct endothelial cell responses to blood flow shape vascular networks
Creators Name:Franco, C.A. and Gerhardt, H.
Abstract:Blood vessel shape is malleable and dynamically regulated. In two recent papers in Nature Cell Biology, Jin et al. (2017) and Sugden et al. (2017) show that endoglin alters endothelial cell shape or behavior in response to blood flow, thus regulating vessel structure.
