The endothelium is the layer of thin specialized epithelium, comprising a simple squamous layer of cells that line the interior surface of blood vessels, forming an interface between circulating blood in the lumen and the rest of the vessel wall (simple squamous epithelium). Endothelial cells line the entire circulatory system, from the heart to the smallest capillary. Endothelial cells are involved in many aspects of vascular biology, such as vasoconstriction and vasodilation, and hence the control of blood pressure; blood clotting (thrombosis & fibrinolysis); atherosclerosis; formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) and inflammation and swelling (oedema). Endothelial cells also control the passage of materials, and the transit of white blood cells, into and out of the bloodstream.
