Arginase Promotes Neointima Formation in Rat Injured Carotid Arteries
(East Carolina University, 2009-04)
Objective—Arginase stimulates the proliferation of cultured vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs); however, the influence of arginase on VSMC growth in vivo is not known. This study investigated the impact of arginase on ...
YC-1 Stimulates the Expression of Gaseous Monoxide-Generating Enzymes in Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells
(East Carolina University, 2009-01)
The benzylindazole derivative 3-(5′-hydroxymethyl-2′-furyl)-1-benzyl indazole (YC-1) is an allosteric stimulator of soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) that sensitizes the enzyme to the gaseous ligands carbon monoxide (CO) and ...
The cyclic GMP modulators YC-1 and zaprinast reduce vessel remodeling through anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects
(East Carolina University, 2009-06)
Guanosine-specific cyclic nucleotide signaling is suggested to serve protective actions in the vasculature; however, the influence of selective pharmacologic modulation of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (GMP)-synthesizing ...
