Arteriosclerosis, thrombosis, and vascular biology, 24(3), 477-482 (2004-01-24)
Arterial injury results in vascular remodeling associated with proliferation and migration of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) and the development of intimal hyperplasia, which is a critical component of restenosis after angioplasty of human coronary arteries and an important feature of...

Tissue engineering. Part A, 20(15-16), 2234-2242 (2014-02-04)
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) plays an important role in wound repair and tissue regeneration. Considerable research has been focused on the exploration of bFGF delivery systems for maintaining efficient local concentration at the injury sites. In this study, bFGF...

Tissue engineering. Part A, 20(13-14), 1971-1979 (2014-02-27)
We investigated the ability of autologous adipose-derived cells injected into cryoinjured rabbit urethras to improve urinary continence and explored the possible mechanisms by which it occurred. Adipose tissue was harvested from the perivesical region of nine 10-week-old female New Zealand...

Systemic inflammation and sequestration of parasitized erythrocytes are central processes in the pathophysiology of severe Plasmodium falciparum childhood malaria. However, it is still not understood why some children are more at risks to develop malaria complications than others. To identify...

American journal of physiology. Lung cellular and molecular physiology, 307(3), L261-L272 (2014-06-22)
Intervening in angiotensin (Ang)-II type 2 receptor (AT2) signaling may have therapeutic potential for bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) by attenuating lung inflammation and preventing arterial hypertension (PAH)-induced right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH). We first investigated the role of AT2 inhibition with PD123319...

Biomaterials, 35(24), 6248-6258 (2014-05-13)
The present study is designed to assess the properties of a new degradable PLA-b-PHEMA block copolymer hydrogel and its therapeutic effectiveness after implantation following a thoracic spinal cord hemisection on rats. Degradable characteristics and porous aspect of the scaffold are...

Annual review of biochemistry, 67, 395-424 (1998-10-06)
Von Willebrand factor (VWF) is a blood glycoprotein that is required for normal hemostasis, and deficiency of VWF, or von Willebrand disease (VWD), is the most common inherited bleeding disorder. VWF mediates the adhesion of platelets to sites of vascular...
R A Jones et al.
Cell death and differentiation, 13(9), 1442-1453 (2005-11-19)
Administration of active TG2 to two different in vitro angiogenesis assays resulted in the accumulation of a complex extracellular matrix (ECM) leading to the suppression of endothelial tube formation without causing cell death. Matrix accumulation was accompanied by a decreased...

Blood, 96(5), 1808-1815 (2000-08-29)
The von Willebrand factor propeptide, vW AgII, has been shown to be required for the formation of vWF multimers and sorting of vWF to storage granules; whether these 2 processes are independent events has been unclear. Chimeric constructs of human...

The journal of sexual medicine, 11(7), 1646-1656 (2014-03-19)
Aging-related erectile dysfunction (A-ED) is a neurovascular and refractory disorder with complicated pathophysiological mechanisms and a high prevalence. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), which modulate a variety of cell functions, may be involved in the pathophysiological processes of this disorder. To investigate the...

A role for nitric oxide (NO) in wound healing has been proposed; however, the absolute requirement of NO for wound healing in vivo and the contribution of endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) have not been determined. Experiments were carried out using...
