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
