Cell surface markers on endothelial cells: a developmental perspective

  • Robert Auerbach
  • Jeymohan Joseph
Part of the Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine book series (DICM, volume 27)


The central thesis that we have developed (1, 2) is that not all capillary endothelial cells are alike, and that differences between these cells are reflections of their diverse embryological origins. The experimental approach for examining this thesis in our laboratory is an immunological one, made on the assumption that the endothelial cell differences of major developmental interest will be those that are expressed by differentiation antigens associated with the cell surface.
