#LaminarShear pushes VE-PTP (How?🤓) to downstream pole of #EndothelialCell, followed by endocytosis->⏫p-Tie2
Potentially explain how #DisturbedFlow⏫#VascularPermeability & #Atherosclerosis
Inhibition of VE-PTP by AKB-9785 fortifies #EndothelialBarrier & reduces Atheromas at atheroprone regions (aortic arch inner curvature, arch+intercostal bifurcations)🐭
Nice comparison of anti-leakage strategies

Like a sandbar, except instead of gravity they collect via the electromagnetic force. Get it?
