Molecular cloning and characterization of the constitutive bovine aortic endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase.
The constitutive endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase (NOS) importantly regulates vascular homeostasis. To gain understanding of this enzyme, a pEF BOS cDNA library of 5 x 10(5) clones was preparedExpand

Importance of Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 Pathway in Neointimal Hyperplasia After Periarterial Injury in Mice and Monkeys
Neointimal hyperplasia is a major cause of restenosis after coronary intervention. Because vascular injury is now recognized to involve an inflammatory response, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1Expand

Regulation of endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase mRNA expression by shear stress.
Shear stress enhances expression of Ca(2+)-calmodulin-sensitive endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase (ecNOS) mRNA and protein in bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAEC). The present studies wereExpand

Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 Is an Essential Inflammatory Mediator in Angiotensin II-Induced Progression of Established Atherosclerosis in Hypercholesterolemic Mice
Objective—Chronic inflammatory processes might be involved in the progression and destabilization of atherosclerotic plaques. Therefore, identification of the mechanism underlying arterialExpand

Anti-Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 Gene Therapy Limits Progression and Destabilization of Established Atherosclerosis in Apolipoprotein E–Knockout Mice
Background—Monocyte infiltration into the arterial wall and its activation is the central event in atherogenesis. Thus, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) might be a novel therapeutic targetExpand

Organization of the bovine gene encoding the endothelial nitric oxide synthase.
The bovine endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene plus 2.9 kilobases of 5'-flanking sequence has been isolated and characterized. The gene spans 20 kilobases and contains 26 exons and 25 introns. TwoExpand

New Anti-Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 Gene Therapy Attenuates Atherosclerosis in Apolipoprotein E-Knockout Mice
BackgroundMonocyte recruitment into the arterial wall and its activation may be the central event in atherogenesis. Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is an important chemokine for monocyteExpand

Anti-monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 gene therapy attenuates pulmonary hypertension in rats.
Monocyte/macrophage chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), a potent chemoattractant chemokine and an activator for mononuclear cells, may play a role in the initiation and/or progression of pulmonaryExpand

Arterial injury-induced smooth muscle cell proliferation in rats is accompanied by increase in polyamine synthesis and level.
Proliferation of smooth muscle cells (SMC), enhancement of polyamine biosynthesis and increase in polyamine level in response to deendothelialization in the rat aorta were studied. [3H]ThymidineExpand

Anti‐monocyte chemoattractant protein‐1 gene therapy inhibits vascular remodeling in rats: blockade of MCP‐1 activity after intramuscular transfer of a mutant gene inhibits vascular remodeling
Monocyte chemoattractant protein‐1 (MCP‐1) may play an essential part in the formation of arteriosclerosis by recruiting monocytes into the arterial wall. Thus, we devised a new strategy forExpand
