Capillary Pericytes Express Α-Smooth Muscle Actin, Which Requires Prevention of Filamentous-Actin Depolymerization For Detection
(eLife Sciences, 2018)
Recent evidence suggests that capillary pericytes are contractile and play a crucial role in the regulation of microcirculation. However, failure to detect components of the contractile apparatus in capillary pericytes, ...
What is a Pericyte?
(International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism, 2016)
Pericytes, spatially-isolated contractile cells on capillaries, have been reported to control cerebral blood flow physiologically, and to limit blood flow after ischaemia by constricting capillaries and then dying. ...
