General description

PPAEC have been used in a pioneer study of endothelial cell motility, where it was determined that asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), an inhibitor of nitric oxide production and a cardiovascular risk factor, decreased PKG-mediated phosphorylation of VASP, leading to downregulation of Rac1 and induction of stress fibers and focal adhesions via RhoA/ROCK dependent mechanism, leading to decreased cell motility, and increase in endothelial permeability, thus linking vascular repair and function with NO production (Wojciak-Stothard, 2007, 2009). PPAEC were also used to assess endothelial adhesion to decellularized porcine arteries in order to develop grafts for human vascular repair (Xiong, 2013).
