The Yorkie homologues YAP (Yes-associated protein) and TAZ (transcriptional coactivator with PDZ-binding motif, also known as WWTR1), effectors of the Hippo pathway, have been identified as mediators for mechanical stimuli. However, the role of YAP/TAZ in haemodynamics-induced mechanotransduction and pathogenesis of atherosclerosis remains unclear. Here we(More)
The fuzziness of the traditional multiaxial fatigue prediction model is discussed and the fuzzy theory is applied into fatigue reliability analysis. The fuzzy linear regression analysis method is used to determine the fuzzy coefficients in the multiaxial stress–life equation under a small sample condition, and the corresponding multiaxial fatigue(More)
Activated vascular endothelium inflammation under persistent hyperlipidemia is the initial step of atherogenesis. ATP-binding cassette G1 (ABCG1) is a crucial factor maintaining sterol and lipid homeostasis by transporting cholesterol efflux to high-density lipoprotein. In this study, we investigated the protective effects of ABCG1 in endothelial(More)
Endothelial cells play an important role in the process of coagulation and the function of platelets. We have previously reported that 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE), a metabolite of arachidonic acid, increased platelet aggregation and induced hemostasis. The purpose of the present study is to investigate whether 20-HETE-mediated endothelial(More)
