Human endothelial cells secrete neurotropic factors to direct axonal growth of peripheral nerves.Grasman, Johnathan M.
Kaplan, David, 1953-
Understanding how nerves spontaneously innervate tissues or regenerate small injuries is critical to enhance material-based interventions to regenerate large scale, traumatic injuries. During embryogenesis, neural and vascular tissues form interconnected, complex networks as a result of signaling between these tissue types. Here, we report that human endothelial cells (HUVECs) secrete brain-derive... read more
