Vascular Biology

The vascular system consists of small and large vessels specifically designed to have different levels of blood flow and pressure depending on the body's location.

Vascular tissue consists of a different cell type population, including endothelial cells, pericytes, fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, and other types of connective tissue cells. The amalgamation of these types of cells constitutes the vascular tissue and forms connections that allow active and passive transportation across the wall of the vessel.

Endothelial cells in the vascular tissue are also involved in a number of other tasks, including: supplying an inner layer to the heart and blood vessels · Discharge of bioactive molecules to affect local cell settings · Influence of normal microvascular growth and angiogenesis · Transfer of molecules from the blood to interstitial fluid · Contiguous smooth muscle relationship.
