Endothelial microparticle formation by angiotensin II is mediated via Ang II receptor type I/NADPH oxidase/ RHO kinase pathways targeted to lipid rafts.
Endothelial microparticle uptake in target cells is annexin I/phosphatidylserine receptor dependent and prevents apoptosis.

C-reactive protein-induced endothelial microparticle generation in HUVECs is related to BH4-dependent NO formation.
Endothelial microparticles (EMPs) are defined as small vesicles (100 nm to 1 mm in diameter) released from endothelial cells in response to activation or apoptosis by various stimuli (12), with a subset of important membrane proteins and phospholipids from their parent cells.
Endothelial microparticles (EMPs) are novel marker of endothelial dysfunction.
Two ml were collected on EDTA for hemogram by automated hematology analyzer ACT Differential (Beckman Coulter, France) and for assay of endothelial microparticles using flowcytometry (Bekhman Coulter, USA).

High levels of circulating endothelial microparticles
in patients with acute coronary syndromes.
The particles, called endothelial microparticles
(EMPs), are shed during the disease process as tiny blood vessels in the lungs, called pulmonary capillaries, are injured and die.
are also thought to contain VWF, which leads to platelet aggregation and therefore the risk of thrombosis.
