 DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our goal is to elucidate the transcriptional specialization of human high endothelial venules (HEV), unique post-capillary venules that control lymphocyte homing and thus immune and inflammatory responses. Most studies of HEV, and the only comprehensive studies of gene expression by HEV, have been carried out in mice: relatively little is known about human HEV or indeed, about the gene programs underlying the segmental and tissue specialization of...
