    Maslinic acid (MA) is a natural triterpenoid widely distributed in edible and medicinal plants and has been demonstrated to possess bioactivity. However, its effect on vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) has not been explored yet. In this study, we found that heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) expression...

    Background: Long pentraxin 3 (PTX3) is a novel candidate marker for inflammation in many chronic diseases. As a soluble pattern recognition receptor, PTX3 is involved in amplification of inflammatory reactions and regulation of innate immunity. Previously, we demonstrate that human airway smooth...

    In the present study, we investigated the reorganization of α- and β-actin in the contracting A7r5 smooth muscle cell. The remodeling of these actin variants was markedly different in response to increasing concentrations of phorbol 12, 13-dibutyrate (PDBu). At the lowest concentrations...

    Abstract  Vascular calcification develops within atherosclerotic lesions and results from a process similar to osteogenesis. Taurine is a free β-amino acid and plays an important physiological role in mammals. We have recently demonstrated that vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs)...

  • A low concentration of genistein induces estrogen receptor-alpha and insulin-like growth factor-I receptor interactions and proliferation in uterine leiomyoma cells. X. Di; L. Yu; A.B. Moore; L. Castro; X. Zheng; T. Hermon; D. Dixon // Human Reproduction;Aug2008, Vol. 23 Issue 8, p1873 

    BACKGROUND Previously, we found that genistein at low concentrations stimulates the growth of human uterine leiomyoma (LM) cells, but not uterine smooth muscle (myometrial) cells (SMC). The aim of this study was to understand the molecular mechanism whereby genistein causes hyperproliferation of...

  • Physiologic Properties and Regulation of the Actin Cytoskeleton in Vascular Smooth Muscle. Tang, Dale D.; Anfinogenova, Yana // Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology & Therapeutics;Jun2008, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p130 

    The article discusses evidence for actin polymerization in smooth muscle upon external stimulation. Protein kinases have been documented to coordinate actin polymerization in smooth muscle. The regulation of smooth muscle contraction at cellular and molecular levels is discussed. The physiologic...

    Airway remodeling is not specifically targeted by current asthma medications, partly owing to the lack of understanding of remodeling mechanisms, altogether posing great challenges in asthma treatment. Increased airway smooth muscle (ASM) mass due to hyperplasia/hypertrophy contributes...
