Table 1 GCX flow and/or chemical treatment with rationale, where applicable

From: Pro-atherosclerotic disturbed flow disrupts caveolin-1 expression, localization, and function via glycocalyx degradation

   Chemical stimulus Rationale
Untreated Hep III-treated
Flow stimulus  Static Yes Yes To assess whether GCX controls baseline EC behavior (as opposed to flow-induced EC behavior)
 Uniform Yes Yes To assess whether EC behavior in UF only occurs due to endothelium coverage by the GCX
 Disturbed Yes   
Rationale To assess GCX expression and EC behavior in response to both pro- and anti-atherosclerotic flow patterns
