    Spatiotemporal dynamics and heterogeneity of renal lymphatics in mammalian development and cystic kidney disease

    Daniyal J Jafree et al.
    Three-dimensional imaging was used to identify structural and quantitative features of developing lymphatics in the kidneys of mice, humans and in a genetic mouse model of polycystic kidney disease.

    VEGF-C promotes the development of lymphatics in bone and bone loss

    Devon Hominick et al.
    Mice that overexpress VEGF-C in bone display a phenotype that resembles Gorham-Stout disease.

    Non-invasive imaging of CSF-mediated brain clearance pathways via assessment of perivascular fluid movement with diffusion tensor MRI

    Ian F Harrison et al.
    The first non-invasive technique to assess the action of brain clearance mechanisms, driven by the perivascular inflow of cerebrospinal fluid, has been developed using magnetic resonance imaging.
    1. Neuroscience

    Human and nonhuman primate meninges harbor lymphatic vessels that can be visualized noninvasively by MRI

    Martina Absinta et al.
    Meningeal lymphatic vessels are present in human and nonhuman primates (common marmoset monkeys) and they can be noninvasively imaged and mapped in vivo with high-resolution, clinical MRI.

    Intracellular uptake of macromolecules by brain lymphatic endothelial cells during zebrafish embryonic development

    Max van Lessen et al.
    The discovery of a unique brain lymphatic cell type in the zebrafish model will facilitate the study of embryonic development and physiology, an essential mission to understand how clearance of macromolecules impact neurological diseases.
    1. Neuroscience

    Anatomical basis and physiological role of cerebrospinal fluid transport through the murine cribriform plate

    Jordan N Norwood et al.
    Chemical ablation of olfactory sensory neurons blocks cerebrospinal fluid outflow into the nasal epithelium, leading to alterations of cerebrospinal fluid dynamics.
    1. Cancer Biology

    R-propranolol is a small molecule inhibitor of the SOX18 transcription factor in a rare vascular syndrome and hemangioma

    Jeroen Overman et al.
    Identification of the R(+)-propranolol enantiomer as an inhibitor of the SOX18 transcription factor activity breaks open potential of drug repurposing in vascular diseases.

    Lymphangiogenic therapy prevents cardiac dysfunction by ameliorating inflammation and hypertension

    LouJin Song et al.
    Lymphangiogenic therapy VEGFCc156s improved angiotensin-II-induced impairments in heart function via novel mechanisms, which include transcriptional responses to alleviate inflammation and cardiac fibrosis, and systemic responses to ameliorate hypertension.

    Late developing cardiac lymphatic vasculature supports adult zebrafish heart function and regeneration

    Michael RM Harrison et al.
    Zebrafish develop cardiac lymphatic vessels along coronary arteries and this vasculature supports scar reduction following severe damage to the myocardium.
    1. Cell Biology

    Vascular remodeling is governed by a VEGFR3-dependent fluid shear stress set point

    Nicolas Baeyens et al.
    Flow-dependent remodeling of blood vessels is critical for normal physiology and for recovery from arterial blockage in disease; understanding its cellular mechanisms may lead to the development of treatments for patients that are deficient in this process following myocardial infarction or other vascular diseases.
