    Objectives: It has been demonstrated that 17�-estradiol (E2) has an inhibitory effect on the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) through an estrogen receptor (ER)-dependent pathway. Both ER subtypes, classical ER (ERa) and the newly identified ER subtype (ER�),...

    Atherosclerosis and associated coronary heart disease events have lower prevalence in women than in men, especially during young adult years. Although multiple lines of evidence suggest that estrogens contribute to this difference, the efficacy of hormone replacement therapy for the prevention...

    Purpose: Our early work showed that the estrogen metabolite 2-methoxyestradiol (2ME) inhibits proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) and vascular contractility through an endothelium-dependent mechanism. The aim of this study was to examine whether 2ME prevents the development of...

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is more common in men and postmenopausal women than premenopausal women, suggesting vascular benefits of female sex hormones. Studies on the vasculature have identified estrogen receptors ERa, ER� and a novel estrogen binding membrane protein GPR30, that mediate...

    Abstract  Vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) migration is a pivotal early step in blood vessel remodeling; however, very little is known about the regulation of this process in the human endometrium during the menstrual cycle. In this study, explants of human endometrium were incubated...

    Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PH) is predominantly a disease of young females. Yet, little is known regarding the effects of female sex hormones in PH. Female rats develop less severe PH compared to male rats, and ovariectomy (OVX) exacerbates PH. Although OVX rats treated with estradiol...

    Endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells express both estrogen receptor (ER) α and β. Recent findings indicate that vascular ERβ and ERα may substitute for one another. Here, we investigate vascular morphology, contractility and protein expression in intact aorta from adult (4...

    Angioleiomyoma is a rare benign solitary tumor, arising from the vascular smooth muscle. This tumor usually occurs in the subcutis of extremities, uncommonly in abdomen, often presents as a small (<2 cm) and is treated with excision. We report an extremely rare case of unusually large...
