... the contribution by [Ca 2+ ] i to Panx1 channel activation in these cells. Within the vasculature, release of ATP in response to hypoxia or changes in blood flow is a key regulatory element of blood vessel vasodilation through purinergic signalling [ 35 – 37 ]. Release of erythrocyte ATP triggers...

... and presentation on their luminal surface, leading to leucocyte adhesion and emigration. Additionally, DARC is expressed on erythrocytes and can act as a sink for chemokines in blood. This limits the dissemination of chemokines through blood into distant organs and tissues as well as reducing their effects...
