The ultrastructure of a human muscular artery (the gastroepiploic artery) is described on the basis of material from six subjects. The morphology of endothelium, subendothelial layer, internal elastic lamina with its fenestrae, smooth muscle cells and external elastic lamina is described and discussed. Most of the results are in agreement with what bas been reported before from arteries in animals.

    Abstract: Objectives: In a preliminary study, NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) was found to be highly expressed in cultured human aortic smooth muscle cells (HASMC) and dicumarol, a NQO1 inhibitor and a coumarin-derived natural anticoagulant, suppressed tumor necrosis factor...

    Spontaneous electrical activity of portal vein smooth muscle tissue was recorded using sharp microelectrode measurements. The activity showed rhythmical action potentials which triggered mechanical contractions which were as well recorded. Furthermore, ion currents of isolated single smooth...

    Vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation is a key event in the progression of arteriosclerosis. Clinical studies show that uremic toxins deteriorate the arteriosclerosis in renal failure patients. Indoxyl sulfate (IS) is a strong protein-bound uremic toxin, but the effect of IS on VSMC...

    Propylthiouracil (PTU), independent of its antithyroid effect, is recently found to have an antiatherosclerotic effect. The aim of this study is to determine the impact of PTU on phenotypic modulation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), as phenotypic modulation may contribute to the growth...

    The rat renal arterial vasculature displays differences in K+ channel current phenotypes along its length. Small arcuate to cortical radial arteries express a delayed rectifier phenotype, while the predominant Kv current in larger arcuate and interlobar arteries is composed of both transient and...

    Background: Transient Receptor Potential Canonical 1 (TRPC1) is a widely-expressed mammalian cationic channel with functional effects that include stimulation of cardiovascular remodelling. The initial aim of this study was to investigate variation in TRPC1-encoding gene transcripts. Results:...

    Differentiated vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) retain the capacity to modify their phenotype in response to inflammation or injury. This phenotypic switching is a crucial component of vascular disease, and is partly dependent on epigenetic regulation. An appreciation has been building in the...
