Abstract: The vessel wall is constantly subjected to, and affected by, the stresses resulting from the hemodynamic stimuli of transmural pressure and flow. At the interface between blood and the vessel wall, the endothelial cell plays a crucial role in controlling vessel structure and function in response to changes in hemodynamic conditions. Using bovine aortic endothelium monolayers, we show that fluid shear stress causes simultaneous differential regulation of endothelial-derived products. We also report that the dow…
