Since the paracrine signaling between activated stellate cells and LSECs is known to be instrumental in the capillarization of LSECs, mechanical cues can also be considered to have an indirect effect on LSECs [54].
These data suggest a potential pathway that may be responsible for altering paracrine signaling between the stroma and tumor cell populations after exposure to iAs.
(4,12) In addition, Ang II receptors have also been found in numerous tissues, allowing for autocrine and paracrine signaling systems.
To examine paracrine signaling they used a microchannel device developed by our long-time collaborator and friend, Dave Beebe , also at UW-Madison, that relies on the passive pumping technology used in BellBrook's iuvo[R] Microchannel plates (URL: http://www.bellbrooklabs.com/products-services/iuvo-microconduit-array-platform).
They may communicate directly through juxtacrine signaling, over short distances through paracrine signaling and over large distances through endocrine signaling.
A paracrine signaling pathway was demonstrated by Kulaksiz and Cetin (85) who detected the presence of uroguanylin and GC-C in human centroacinar cells and the epithelial cells of pancreas ducts, but not in the islets of Langerhans.

Altogether these findings again suggest a mutually reinforcing network of HSF/SF upon c-Met paracrine signaling between glioma cells and TAMs, whereby glioma cells recruit monocytes in the alternatively activating tumor microenvironment to subsequently derive trophic stimulation by alternatively mature TAM secretion of HGF/SF.
The cellular response to skeletal muscle injury also includes an increase in intracellular paracrine signaling within the tissue.
Follicular growth is disrupted as a result of ovarian hyperandrogenism, hyperinsulinemia due to insulin resistance and distorted intraovarian paracrine signaling (3).
