Sammanfattning

Endothelial injury makes the vessel wall vulnerable to cardiovascular diseases. Injured endothelium regenerates by collective sheet migration, that is, the endothelial cells coordinate their motion and regrow as a sheet of cells with retained cell-cell contacts into the wounded area. Leukocytes appear to be involved in endothelial repair in vivo; however, little is known about their identity and role in the reparative sheet migration process. To address these questions, we developed a high-quality en face technique that enables visualizing of leukocytes and endothelial cells simultaneously following an endoluminal scratch wound injury of the mouse carotid artery. We discovered that regrowing endothelium forms a broad proliferative front accompanied by CD11c(+) leukocytes. Functionally, the leukocytes were dispensable for the initial migratory response of the regrowing endothelial sheet, but critical for the subsequent formation and maintenance of a front zone with high cellular density. Marker expression analyses, genetic fate mapping, phagocyte targeting experiments, and mouse knock-out experiments indicate that the CD11c(+) leukocytes were mononuclear phagocytes with an origin from both Ly6C(high) and Ly6C(low) monocytes. In conclusion, CD11c(+) mononuclear phagocytes are essential for a proper endothelial regrowth following arterial endoluminal scratch injury. Promoting the endothelial-preserving function of CD11c(+) leukocytes may be a strategy to enhance endothelial repair following surgical and endovascular procedures.
