The extended role of blood vessels

Blood vessels form a systemically disseminated organ that distributes oxygen and nutrients and re­moves metabolic waste products. A dense network of microvessels facilitates the trafficking of immune cells throughout the body. Yet, blood vessels do not just support rheological functions. They form one of the body’s largest surfaces serving as critical interface between the circulation and the different organ environments.

 

Work pursued in the last couple of years has identified critical gatekeeper functions of tissue homeostasis and adaptation to pathologic challenge. It is now increasingly recognized that vascular control of the tissue microenvironment is indispensable in development, homeostasis, inflammation, and metabolism as well as cancer and metastasis. This multitude of vascular functions is mediated by organ-specifically differentiated endothelial and mural cells, whose cellular and molecular heterogeneity has long been recognized.

 

Yet, distinct organotypic functional attributes as well as the molecular mechanisms controlling endothelial and mural cell differentiation and vascular bed-specific functions have only recently been uncovered. The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1366 “Vas­cular Control of Organ Function” aims at systematically studying gatekeeper functions of organotypically differentiated endothelial and mural cells during develop­ment and regeneration.
