Lymphatic contractility and oxidative stress

Anatoliy A. Gashev, Sangeetha Thangaswamy, Victor Chatterjee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The lymphatic system plays a vital role in the maintenance of fluid and macromolecule homeostasis, lipid absorption, and immune cell trafficking. All of these functions cannot be performed effectively without proper contractile function of lymphatic vessels. Authors provide a summary of the basic principles of regulation of lymphatic contractility and available data related to the influence of oxidative stress on the contractile function of lymphatic vessels in adulthood and the elderly.
