: The term vascular niche indicate the physical and biochemical microenvironment around blood vessel where endothelial cells, pericytes, and smooth muscle cells organize themselves to form blood vessels and release molecules involved in the recruitment of hematopoietic stem cells, endothelial progenitor cells and mesenchymal stem cells. The vascular niche creates a permissive environment that enables different cell types to realize their developmental or regenerative programs. In this context, the proximity between the endothelium and the new-forming cellular components of organs suggests an essential role of endothelial cells in the organs maturation. Dynamic interactions between specific organ endothelial cells and different cellular conponents are crucial for different organ morphogenesis and function. Conversely, organs provide cues shaping vascular network structure.

Abstract

: The term vascular niche indicate the physical and biochemical microenvironment around blood vessel where endothelial cells, pericytes, and smooth muscle cells organize themselves to form blood vessels and release molecules involved in the recruitment of hematopoietic stem cells, endothelial progenitor cells and mesenchymal stem cells. The vascular niche creates a permissive environment that enables different cell types to realize their developmental or regenerative programs. In this context, the proximity between the endothelium and the new-forming cellular components of organs suggests an essential role of endothelial cells in the organs maturation. Dynamic interactions between specific organ endothelial cells and different cellular conponents are crucial for different organ morphogenesis and function. Conversely, organs provide cues shaping vascular network structure.
