The book represents a paradigm shift from the traditional static model of investigation of oxidative biology to the dynamic model of vascular oxidative stress. The investigation of vascular biology and cardiovascular medicine is made possible by the use of fluid dynamics, molecular signaling, genomic approach, tissue engineering, stem cell biology, and microfluidics. This is the first book to target a wide readership from academia to industry and government agencies in the field of cardiovascular diseases. Contents: Flow and Atherosclerosis (I Campbell & W R Taylor) Shear Stress-Mediated Signal Transduction (J-I Abe et al.) Endothelial Glycocalyx Structure and Role in Mechanotransduction (J M Tarbell & E E Ebong) Role of Krppel-Like Factors in Shear Stress-Mediated Vasoprotection (D Kawanami et al.) Rho Family Small GTPases in Shear Stress Signaling (D T Sweet & E Tzima) Nitric Oxide and Endothelial Mitochondrial Function: Implications for Ischemia/Reperfusion (B R Alevriadou et al.) Genomic Approaches to Endothelial Cell Phenotyping (A G Passerini) Endothelial Cell Proliferation and Differentiation in Response to Shear Stress (L-F Zeng et al.&#41 & Vascular Differentiation of Stem Cells by Mechanical Forces (T M Maul et al.&#41.
