The diameters of the D2-40 stained lymphatic vessels were assessed by using the Image-J[R], a public domain, Java-based image processing program developed at the National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD, USA).
Interestingly, CCL1 is expressed by the subcapsular sinus lymphatic ECs of skin-draining lymph nodes but not by capillary lymphatic vessels in the skin, and inhibiting the CCL1/CCR8 interaction leads to impaired DC migration into the lymph node parenchyma, indicating that the CCL1/CCR8 axis functions downstream of the DC entry into lymphatics by regulating entry into the subcapsular sinus of the lymph nodes.
To visualize course and occurrence of lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes, lymphoscintigraphy is used as a gold standard to visualize lymphatic function.
Noncancer cells in the TME, such as blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and inflammatory cells, also release bioactive molecules that influence cancer progression.
Since the thoracic duct is preceded by the emergence of parachordal lymphatic vessels (PC) that start to sprout from the embryonic posterior cardinal vein (PCV) at around 32 hours postfertilization (hpf) [37, 38], we investigated the influence of a tmsb-like KD on the pattern of PC-formation at 60 hpf by in vivo confocal imaging of Tg[(fli1-egfp).sup.y1] zebrafish.
