    Abstract: Objective: It has been recently suggested that perivascular tissue (PVT) releases hypothetic adipocyte- or adventitia-derived relaxing factor. The aim of the study was to assess anticontractile properties of perivascular tissue of human internal thoracic artery (ITA) and to check if...

    Perivascular adipose tissue exerts an anticontractile influence on vascular smooth muscle. This study was conducted to determine whether periureteral adipose tissue (PUAT) could exert a similar influence upon ureteral smoothmuscle.

    Introduction: Perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) exerts an anticontractile effect. Studies using various vasoconstrictors suggest that this may be dependent on adrenergic stimulation and the subsequent release of nitric oxide. This has not previously been investigated in PVAT but...

    Aim The aim of this study was to investigate the role of cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG) in mediating the anticontractile function of perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) and whether its activation can rescue PVAT activity which is lost in an experimental model of inflammation. Methods and...

    Background: Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a potent vasodilator. However, the complex mechanisms of vasoregulation by H2S are not fully understood. We tested the hypotheses that (1) H2S exerts vasodilatory effects by opening KCNQ-type voltage-dependent (Kv) K+ channels and (2) that H2S-producing...

    There is now clear evidence that adipocytes are engine rooms producing a large number of factors which can have profound influences upon adjacent tissues. In particular, perivascular fat can influence arterial tone and healthy adipocytes secrete a number of vasorelaxing molecules. Recent...

    Perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) has been proposed as a cause of atherosclerosis, recently. The location of PVAT is in association with the artery wall, which enables diffusion of adipokines (e.g. superoxide anion, angiotensin II, tumor necrosis factor-α, and adiponectin). The adipokines...

    Extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling with successive tissue fibrosis is a key feature of chronic cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis and restenosis. The atherogenic changes underlying these pathologies result from chronification of an acute repair response towards injurious and...
