Effect of fluid shear stress on migration of vascular smooth muscle cells in cocultured model



Effect of fluid shear stress on migration of vascular smooth muscle cells in cocultured model



Annals of Biomedical Engineering 34(3): 408-415



Migration of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in hyperplasia is thought to have a correlation with blood flow conditions. In this study, the effect of shear stress applied to endothelial cells (ECs) on SMC migration was examined using a newly designed EC-SMC coculture model (CM), in which bovine SMCs and ECs were separated by a collagen layer and a membrane filter.
