Endothelial Factors

Structures and products of endothelial cells—the cells lining blood vessels—maintain blood fluidity by preventing excessive clotting and prevent bleeding by promoting clotting. The following endothelium-associated terms are presented as a guide to style.

Class

Term

Abbreviation

cellular (or cell) adhesion molecules

CAMs

intercellular adhesion molecule 1

ICAM-1

intercellular adhesion molecule 2

ICAM-2

platelet-endothelial CAM

PECAM

vascular CAM 1

VCAM-1

cytokines (see also 15.8.4, Immunology, Cytokines)

gro (growth-stimulating factor)

RANTES (regulated on activation, normal T-expressed, and presumably secreted3)

integrins

α1β1 integrin

α2β3 integrin

α3β1 integrin

α6β1 integrin

αvβ1 integrin

αvβ3 integrin

miscellaneous

nitric oxide

NO

prostacyclin, prostaglandin I2

PGI2

E-selectin

L-selectin

P-selectin

tissue plasminogen activator (see 15.7.4, Inhibition of Coagulation and Fibrinolysis)

tPA
