Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a progressive disorder with severe late complications. Normal wound healing involves a series of complex and well-orchestrated molecular events dictated by multiple factors. In diabetes, wound healing is grossly impaired due to defective, and dysregulated cellular and molecular events at all phases of wound healing resulting in(More)
Aldosterone synthesis is primarily regulated by angiotensin II and potassium ions. In addition, endothelial cell-secreted factors have been shown to regulate mineralocorticoid release. We analyzed the pathways that mediate endothelial cell-factor-induced aldosterone release from adrenocortical cells, NCI-H295R using endothelial cell-conditioned medium(More)
Endothelial cells play an important role in the development and functioning of endocrine tissue and endothelial cell-derived factors have been shown to regulate mineralocorticoid release in bovine adrenal cells. In the present study, we analysed the role of human endothelial cells in the synthesis and release of aldosterone from adrenocortical cells(More)
Endothelial cell-derived products influence the synthesis of aldosterone and cortisol in human adrenocortical cells by modulating proteins such as steroidogenic acute-regulatory (StAR) protein, steroidogenic factor (SF)-1 and CITED2. However, the potential endothelial cell-derived factors that mediate this effect are still unknown. The current study was(More)
