Polyelectrolyte layer-by-layer (LbL) nanofilms are interesting polymeric structures, built by alternating adsorption of positively and negatively charged polyelectrolytes. They consist of multilayer sheets with nanometric overall thickness, and they can be used as supports and surface coatings for in vitro

Liver sinusoidal endothelium (LSEC) is a prime example of organ-specific microvascular differentiation and functions. Disease-associated capillarization of LSEC in vivo and dedifferentiation of LSEC in vitro indicate the importance of the hepatic microenvironment.
