Activation of the transcription factor nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB by proinflammatory stimuli leads to increased expression of genes involved in inflammation. Activation of NF-kappaB requires the activity of an inhibitor of kappaB (IkappaB)-kinase (IKK) complex containing two kinases (IKKalpha and IKKbeta) and the regulatory protein NEMO (NF-kappaB essential(More)
Leptin is a hormone that regulates food intake, and its receptor (OB-Rb) is expressed primarily in the hypothalamus. Here, it is shown that OB-Rb is also expressed in human vasculature and in primary cultures of human endothelial cells. In vitro and in vivo assays revealed that leptin has angiogenic activity. In vivo, leptin induced neovascularization in(More)
1. In calf pulmonary artery endothelial (CPAE) cells loaded with fura-2, the effects of ATP on Ca2+ entry were mediated entirely by the ability of P2U purinoceptors to stimulate InsP3 formation, empty intracellular Ca2+ stores and thereby activate capacitative Ca2+ entry. 2. Restoration of extracellular Ca2+ to cells with empty intracellular stores evoked(More)
