During leukocyte rolling on the endothelium, membrane tethers can be extracted simultaneously from both leukocytes and endothelial cells. Tether extraction, which has been shown to stabilize leukocyte rolling, is preceded by surface protrusion, which dictates whether tether extraction can occur. Although surface protrusion of leukocytes has been characterized, surface protrusion of endothelial cells has not. In this work, we present a detailed study of surface protrusion of human umbilical veindoi:10.1016/j.bpj.2010.12.1258 fatcat:65pmnp2flve7zodtzqmkztqodu
