Abstract:In ischemic vascular diseases, leukocyte recruitment and polarization are crucial for revascularization and tissue repair. The study of Laban et al. provides evidence that VASP is a major regulator of leukocyte recruitment and polarization and vascular repair after ischemia. Mechanistically, the study supports a novel role of VASP in chemokine receptor trafficking.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
