    Immunomagnetic Isolation and Enrichment of Microvascular Endothelial Cells from Human Adipose Tissue
    [Abstract]

    Human adipose tissue-resident microvascular endothelial cells are not only garnering attention for their emergent role in the pathogenesis of obesity-related metabolic disorders, but are also of considerable interest for vascular tissue engineering due, in part, to the abundant, accessible, and uniquely dispensable nature of the tissue. Here, we

    Chronic Daily House Dust Mite Exposure in Mice is an Effective Model to Quantify the Effect of Pharmacologic Agents on Discrete Stages of Artery Remodeling in Pulmonary Hypertension
    Authors:  Lea C. Steffes and Maya E. Kumar, date: 01/05/2022, view: 1360, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a heterogenous and incurable disease marked by varying degrees of pulmonary vascular remodeling. This vascular remodeling, which includes thickening of the smooth muscle layer (an early finding) and formation of occlusive neointimal lesions (a late finding) in the pulmonary arteries, is a major driver of morbidity

    A Swimming-based Assay to Determine the Exercise Capacity of Adult Zebrafish Cardiomyopathy Models
    Authors:  Xiao Ma and Xiaolei Xu, date: 08/05/2021, view: 1276, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Exercise capacity, measured by treadmill in humans and other mammals, is an important diagnostic and prognostic index for patients with cardiomyopathy and heart failure. The adult zebrafish is increasingly used as a vertebrate model to study human cardiomyopathy due to its conserved cardiovascular physiology, convenience for genetic manipulation,

    A Genetically Engineered Mouse Model of Venous Anomaly and Retinal Angioma-like Vascular Malformation
    Authors:  Xudong Cao, Beibei Xu, Xiao Li, Taotao Li and Yulong He, date: 08/05/2021, view: 1655, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Characterization of key regulators in vein development will advance our understanding of mechanisms underlying venous anomalies and provide therapeutic targets for the treatment of vascular malformations. Here, we provide a detailed protocol for the generation of genetically engineered mouse models targeting the Tek gene for the analysis of vein
