Vascular walls being permeable is disadvantageous, since that would enable passage of some macromolecules or other harmful antigens. This group of endothelial glycoproteins, characterized by relatively small glicoalix sugar residues and branched carbohydrate side chains, comprises a number of molecules that all have been studied intensively; major classes that will be discussed in more detail below are the endothelial cell adhesion molecules and components of the coagulation and fibrinolysis system.

The endothelial glycocalyx: composition, functions, and visualization

Many studies have focused and still focus on the interactions between these integrins and the subendothelial matrix during angiogenesis [ 98 ]. Bacterial Glycocalyx in Nature and Disease. Both subunits have a cytoplasmic tail and a transmembrane domain, and together, they constitute an integral membrane protein. Glycocalyx and endothelial dys function: Received Oct 4; Accepted Jan gliccalix.

These enzymes help to reduce the oxidative stress and keep up NO bioavailability, thus, preventing the endothelium from becoming dysfunctional. In this review we will, therefore, use the term endothelial glycocalyx for the total layer Fig. Please review our privacy policy.

The arrows indicate the direction of the XYand Z axis. Vogl-Willis CA, Edwards IJ High-glucose-induced structural changes in the heparan sulfate proteoglycan, perlecan, of cultured human aortic endothelial cells. Using a physical model, e, on hemodynamic and hematocrit measurements in microvascular networks in vivo, Pries and Secomb recently demonstrated that incorporation of realistic estimates of glycocalyx dimensions in reconstructed mesenteric microvascular networks introduces about a twofold increase in the apparent viscosity of blood.


Damage to tissues during a period of absent or decreased flow total or partial ischemia can paradoxically be exaggerated by restoration of blood flow reperfusion. Ghitescu L, Robert M Diversity in unity: For example, syndecan-1 proteoglycan is often addressed as a heparan sulfate proteoglycan, while in fact, it usually contains similar numbers of heparan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate chains [ 70 ].

J Intern Med Docking of plasma-derived molecules can influence the local environment in several ways: Furthermore, the glycocalyx suffers from enzymatic or shear-induced shedding. Assessing this possible involvement of the endothelial glycocalyx requires reliable visualization of this delicate layer, which is a great challenge. Enzymatic removal of any of its constituents dramatically affects glycocalyx properties, which exemplifies the importance of considering the synergetic interaction of all glycocalyx ell as a whole.


A distinct, gelatinous glycocalyx is called a capsulewhereas an irregular, diffuse layer is called a slime layer. Like platelets, endothelial cells express all components of the Ib-IX—V complex [], which on one hand, allows binding to the vWf substrate of the subendothelium, and on the other, binds Weibel—Palade body derived vWf, secreted luminally by gkicocalix endothelial cells.

J Am Coll Cardiol Components of the endothelial glycocalyx. Beresewicz A, Czarnowska E, Maczewski M Ischemic preconditioning and superoxide dismutase protect against endothelial dysfunction and endothelium glycocalyx disruption in the postischemic guinea-pig hearts.

The other proteoglycans, such as mimecan, perlecan, and biglycan, are secreted after their assembly and glycosaminoglycan chain modification [ 4450 ]. Experimental data from the micro- and macrocirculation alludes at a vasculoprotective role for the glycocalyx. Endothelial cells exposed to shear stress produce nitric oxide NO [ 96 ], which is an important determinant of vascular tone.

Another possibility is that hyaluronan is in part not directly bound to the membrane at all. Each of glicocslix five glycosaminoglycans has been investigated and reviewed extensively [ 22275758].


Atherosclerosis Atherosclerosis is a glicovalix artery disease and typically requires high plasma levels of LDL to develop at predilection sites [ 34 ] that are marked by disturbed flow profiles. The unity of form and function. The term was initially applied to the polysaccharide matrix coating epithelial cells, but its functions have been discovered to go well beyond that.

The xylose-enriched core protein is transported to the glicocailx -Golgi, and galactosyltransferases types I and II will add two galactose-groups Gal to the xylose, after which glucuronosyltransferase type I adds glucuronic acid, thus, completing the primary linker for glycosaminoglycan chains: Also note the presence of IdoA in dermatan sulfate, in contrast to the other chondroitin sulfates, making it more alike to heparan sulfate.

G—G [ PubMed ]. J Thromb Haemost 1: The study found that flow of oxygen throughout the blood vessels did not have to be completely absent ischemic hypoxiabut that minimal [ clarification needed ] levels of oxygen were sufficient to cause the degradation. Intravital Microscopy of the Inguinal Lymph Node. The classical model used to describe microvascular fluid exchange is that of Starling [ ], stating that fluid filtration rate across capillary glicovalix is determined by the hydraulic and colloid osmotic pressures in the vascular lumen and in the surrounding tissue.

However, the molecule s responsible for the translation of biomechanical forces into biochemical signals mechanotransduction have not been identified as yet. All these anticoagulant molecules present in the glycocalyx contribute to the thromboresistant nature of healthy endothelium [ 21 ]. Therefore, naming of proteoglycans after one type of glycosaminoglycan is somewhat deluding.
