Is caveolin-1 depletion the key to endothelial cell phenotypic switching in inflammatory vascular disease?

Endothelial cells (ECs) function as the central regulators of blood – tissue communication, controlling the exchange of solutes and immune cells between the vascular and extravascular compartments. In healthy lungs, quiescent ECs express high levels of caveolin-1

Fatigue and torsional resistance of controlled memory and conventional nickel-titanium endodontic instruments

The endodontic field encountered an important breakthrough with the introduction of the nitinol alloy. It offers special mechanical properties like a shape memory effect and superelasticity. Despite of the particular properties of NiTi instruments, they could suffer
