vascular tissue

n
(Botany) tissue of higher plants consisting mainly of xylem and phloem and occurring as a continuous system throughout the plant: it conducts water, mineral salts, and synthesized food substances and provides mechanical support. Also called: conducting tissue

Prellis' Vascular Tissue Blanks are now being used by scientists for research in oncology, tissue development research, neurobiology studies, and drug testing.
The gained vessel length is not only a result of the elastic properties of the vessels, but also a gradual regeneration process with endothelial, intimal, and perivascular proliferation, as in the skin expansion process, biological creep plays role on the generation of new vascular tissue. [11] Unlike the acute arterial elongation technique, which is intraoperatively performed to gain an instant vessel length by stretch capacity, traction vasculogenesis allows time for adventitial, muscular, and intimal cell regeneration additionally.
