Effect of glycocalyx and its advance in the sepsis
Glycocalyx is endothelial cells polysaccharide structure, which is mainly composed of proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), membrane glycoprotein and plasma proteins. It play an important role in maintaining the permeability of endothelial cells and managing the structure and microenvironment in blood vessels. To participate in a variety of diseases-including sepsis-physiological and pathological process. In sepsis, inflammatory factor function damage the integrity of the glycocalyx, resulting in dysfunction of glycocalyx.
