Experimental and theoretical modelling of blind-ended vessels within a developing angiogenic plexus

Abstract:

Angiogenic sprouts at the leading edge of an expanding vascular plexus are recognised as major regulators of the structure of the developing network. Early in sprout development, a vascular lumen is often evident which communicates with the parent vessel while the distal tip is blind-ended. Here we describe the temporal evolution of blind-ended vessels (BEVs) in a small wound made in the panniculus carnosus muscle of a mouse viewed in a dorsal skin-fold window-chamber model with intra-vital m...
