The endocannabinoid anandamide has been reported to affect neuronal cells, immune cells and smooth muscle cells via either CB1 or CB2 receptors. In endothelial cells, the receptors involved in activating signal transduction are still unclear, despite the fact that anandamide is produced in this cell type. The present study was designed to explore in detail(More)
The GPI-anchored protein T-cadherin was found to be an atypical LDL binding site that is expressed in various types of cells, including endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, and neurons. Notably, the expression of T-cadherin was reduced in numerous types of cancers, although it was up-regulated in tumor-penetrating blood vessels, atherosclerotic lesions,(More)
Heparin binding to human low density lipoproteins (LDL) and the effect of heparin on the ability of LDL to bind to the LDL receptor has been investigated. Emphasis has been made on the physiological conditions of temperature, pH and the ionic strength. Intrinsic fluorescence spectroscopy of LDL has been applied to follow heparin binding.
