LP7068-2     Blood capillary

  Part: BldC
  Description: Capillaries are the smallest of a body's blood vessels, measuring 5-10 μm. They connect arterioles and venules, and they are the blood vessels that most closely interact with tissues. The walls of capillaries are composed of only a single layer of cells, the endothelium. This layer is so thin that molecules such as oxygen, water and lipids can pass through them by diffusion and enter the tissues. Waste products such as carbon dioxide and urea can diffuse back into the blood to be carried away for removal from the body. Capillary permeability can be increased by the release of certain cytokines. The endothelium also actively transports nutrients, messengers and other substances. Large molecules may be too big to diffuse across endothelial cells. In some cases, vesicles contained in the capillary membrane use endocytosis and exocytosis to transport material between blood and the tissues.
