Intravital microscopy demonstrated that TNFa-induced leukocyte adhesion and emigration was blunted in EC-specific Panx1-deficient mice.[5] In a similar study, thrombin induced a robust, Ca 2+-dependent ATP release through Panx1 channels in HUVECs.[35] These results highlight Panx1 as a key protein for the cross talk between cytokine and purinergic signaling in early inflammation.
In this regard, one of the promising methods is acoustic microscopy, which has several advantages: being noninvasive, intravital, non-toxic, and allows observation in dynamics.
Furthermore, intravital two-photon microscopic analysis showed that T cell migration in the parenchyma is significantly attenuated in the conditional ATX-deficient mice compared to control mice and that the ATX/LPA-dependent T cell motility is mediated by the LPA receptor [LPA.sub.2] on the T cell surface.
Researchers made the discovery through the use of a technology called two-photon intravital imaging.
According to the results of intravital angiographic study, the grafts were passable and conducted a pulse wave without difficulty; the prosthesis boundaries were barely distinguishable; there were no signs of stenosis or dilatation (Figure 6).
