Acta Anat Basel The three families of cell adhesion molecules present in the endothelial glycocalyx are the selectin family, the integrin family, and the immunoglobulin superfamily. In arterial vascular tissue, the glycocalyx also inhibits coagulation and leukocyte adhesion, glicoxalix through mediation of shear stress-induced nitric oxide release.

Am J Physiol Please review our privacy policy. Indeed, it has been shown that modification patterns vary in time and under different patho physiological stimuli [ 4]. In healthy mice, regional variations were found showing a thinner glycocalyx in the internal carotid sinus region compared to the common carotid artery.

The discovery of a relatively thick endothelial glycocalyx and its influence on, e. Another possibility is that hyaluronan is in part not directly bound to the membrane at all.

After the ribosomal translation of the core protein, a xylosyltransferase will transfer xylose Xyl from uracildiphosphate xylose to specific serine residues Ser in the core protein.


Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Bacteria growing in natural ecosystems, such as in soil, bovine intestines, or the human urinary tract, are surrounded by some glicocalixx of glycocalyx-enclosed microcolony.

Starling EH On the absorption of fluids from the connective tissue spaces.


J Histochem Cytochem Subendothelial retention of atherogenic lipoproteins and subsequent inflammatory responses lead to the formation of subendothelial plaques [ 6093 ].

Leukocytes must not stick to the vascular wall because they are important components of the immune system that must be able to travel to a specific region of the body when needed. Raman R, Sasisekharan V, Sasisekharan R Structural insights into biological roles of protein—glycosaminoglycan interactions. Since then, many other attempts were made to image the glycocalyx using TEM. Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology. A good example is the glycoprotein Ib-IX—V complex, which is expressed on endothelial cells and also on platelets.

The role of ICAM-2 in inflammation is still unclear, as it is also downregulated by inflammatory stimuli.

Ann Biomed Eng The endothelium is exposed to mechanical forces induced by blood flow. The glycocalyxalso known as the pericellular matrix, is a glycoprotein and glycolipid covering that surrounds the cell membranes of some bacteriaepitheliaand other cells. It has been shown to interact with itself, forming stable hyaluronan—hyaluronan complexes []. All these anticoagulant molecules present in the glycocalyx contribute to the thromboresistant nature of healthy endothelium [ 21 ].


Protein—glycosaminoglycan—protein complexes have been identified, although not in the glycocalyx in particular [ ].

After formation of the primary linker, the following step determines the type of glycosaminoglycan chain that will be formed. Lipowsky HH Microvascular rheology and hemodynamics. The difference between the two is possible epimerization of the glucuronic acids into iduronic acids in dermatan sulfate, which has important consequences for functionality.

Certain stimuli that cause atheroma may lead to enhanced sensitivity of vasculature. Carey DJ Syndecans: In the microcirculation, a red blood cell exclusion zone flanking the endothelium can be observed in vivo, which is decreased upon light dye-induced breakdown of the glycocalyx [ ].

Evidence for cytokine-induced destabilization of messenger ribonucleic acid transcripts in bovine endothelial cells. If the problem continues, please let us know and we’ll try to help. Located between the blood stream and the endothelium, the endothelial glycocalyx is an important determinant of vascular permeability [ 35].

Together, these data suggest that the endothelial glycocalyx is involved in the initiation and progression of the atherosclerotic process [ 74 ].
