Specifically in the brain the LEL has been used to as selective microglial marker (Moffett et al., 1997; Dalmau, 2003) but the LEL has been reported to bind to poly-N-acetyl-lactosamine residues in other different cells like as on endothelia (Whyte et al., 1993; Moffett et al., Fakla et al., 1998).
In all ages studied the LEL-staining was observed in the endothelia of mostly vessels in the pineal capsules (C), in the central regions of the gland (CR) and, in the peripheral region, which encompasses two subdivisions: the more peripheral layer (PL--underlying the C) and the deep layer (DL--adjacent and under to PL).
In the rat aortic rings with functional endothelia, 7-epiclusianone up to 10[micro]M induced a concentration-dependent vasodilatation of the sustained contractions induced by phenylephrine (0.3 [micro]M).
