Hyperproliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) is critically involved in the onset of atherosclerosis and restenosis. Although caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE, 1), one of the main constituents of honeybee propolis, has been shown to exert a beneficial effect in models of vascular injury in vivo, detailed mechanistic investigations in vascular(More)
Abnormal vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation contributes to the pathogenesis of restenosis. Thus, drugs interfering with cell cycle progression in VSMC are promising candidates for an antirestenotic therapy. In this study, we pharmacologically characterize(More)
Abnormal vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation contributes to neointima formation during the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and restenosis. Drugs interfering with the cell cycle progression of VSMCs are therefore promising candidates for the treatment of vasculoproliferative diseases. Roscovitine (ROSC) has been characterised as a selective(More)
