All endothelial cells have the common characteristic that they line the vessels of the blood circulatory system. However, endothelial cells display a large degree of heterogeneity in the function of their location in the vascular tree. In this article, we have summarized the expression patterns of a number of well-accepted endothelial surface markers present in normal microvascular endothelial cells, arterial and venous endothelial cells, lymphatic endothelial cells, tumor endothelial cells, and endothelial precursor cells.

Abstract

All endothelial cells have the common characteristic that they line the vessels of the blood circulatory system. However, endothelial cells display a large degree of heterogeneity in the function of their location in the vascular tree. In this article, we have summarized the expression patterns of a number of well-accepted endothelial surface markers present in normal microvascular endothelial cells, arterial and venous endothelial cells, lymphatic endothelial cells, tumor endothelial cells, and endothelial precursor cells.
