Additional file 5:Video 1. Live cell imaging showing microsphere uptake by HUVECs. HUVECs were transduced with lentiviral LifeAct (green) to visualize the cytoskeleton and images were taken every 2 min over 8 h in xy. Left panel: LifeAct (green) and a 15 µm microsphere (white; coming in from the left) and fibrin clot (white; coming in from the right). Right panel: only LifeAct signal in grey. The endothelium generates protrusions and a F-actin rich cup structure surrounding the microsphere, occurring after ± 4 h after microsphere addition (red arrow indicates the endothelial cup)
