Changes in tension of spiral strips from basilar, external carotid, temporal and muscle arteries from cattle, dog and man were monitored isometrically. Dose-response curves for 5-HT, noradrenaline and ergotamine indicated a variation in responsiveness between different arteries of the same species as well as between the same arteries of different species.(More)
Smoking is a risk factor for atherosclerosis with reported widespread effects on gene expression in circulating blood cells. We hypothesized that a molecular signature mediating the relation between smoking and atherosclerosis may be found in the transcriptome of circulating monocytes. Genome-wide expression profiles and counts of atherosclerotic plaques in(More)
OBJECTIVE We have previously reported that SASH1 expression is increased in circulating human monocytes from smokers and was positively correlated with the number of carotid atherosclerotic plaques. The aim of this study was to further validate the link between smoking, SASH1 and atherosclerosis within the vascular wall and to assess the impact of SASH1(More)
