Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent progenitor nonhematopoietic cells that have emerged as an attractive cell source for tissue engineering. Biglycan (BGN), an extracellular matrix component, has been reported to play a crucial role in bone formation. However, the role of BGN in MSCs remains unknown. Using lentiviral gene delivery, we sought to(More)
We previously reported that 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE) is an endogenous cytochrome P450 (cP450) 4A metabolite of arachidonic acid (AA) in human lung tissue, and is a potent cyclooxygenase-dependent vasodilator of isolated pulmonary arteries. In the present investigations, we identified sources of cP450 4A immunospecific protein, messenger RNA(More)
