    PLoS ONE 7:e38590. 2012
    ..However, current analysis of TPLSM-based data is limited to the lower range of blood velocities and is not adequate to study faster velocities in many normal or disease conditions...
  2. pmc Notch4 is required for tumor onset and perfusion
    Maria Jose Costa
    Laboratory for Accelerated Vascular Research, Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
    Vasc Cell 5:7. 2013
    ..Genetic deletion of Notch4 does not result in an overt phenotype in mice, thus the function of Notch4 remains poorly understood...
  3. pmc Cellular and molecular mechanism regulating blood flow recovery in acute versus gradual femoral artery occlusion are distinct in the mouse
    Yagai Yang
    Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, University of California, San Francisco, California, USA
    J Vasc Surg 48:1546-58. 2008
    ..We, therefore, developed the first mouse model of gradual arterial occlusion and tested the hypothesis that the mechanisms regulating blood flow recovery are critically dependent on the rate of arterial occlusion...
