The neuronal dopamine transporter/uptake site can be covalently labeled with the photoaffinity probe 1-(2-[bis-(4-fluorophenyl) methoxy]ethyl)-4-[2-(4-azido-3-[125I]iodophenyl)ethyl]piperazine [( 125I]FAPP) and visualized following sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and autoradiography. Upon photolysis, [125I]FAPP specifically(More)
Rings of rat or mouse aorta embedded in collagen gels produce angiogenic outgrowths in response to the injury of the dissection procedure. Aortic outgrowths are composed of branching endothelial tubes and surrounding mural cells. Mural cells emerge following endothelial sprouting and gradually increase during the maturation of the neovessels. Treatment of(More)
The purpose of this study was to define early events during the angiogenic response of the aortic wall to injury. Rat aortic rings produced neovessels in collagen culture but lost this capacity over time. These quiescent rings responded to vascular endothelial growth factor but not to a mixture of macrophage-stimulatory cytokines and chemokines that was(More)
The angiogenic response to injury can be studied by culturing rat or mouse aortic explants in collagen gels. Gene expression studies show that aortic angiogenesis is preceded by an immune reaction with overexpression of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and TLR-inducible genes. TLR1, 3, and 6 are transiently upregulated at 24 h whereas TLR2, 4, and 8 expression(More)
