BACKGROUND Oxidative damage of vascular endothelium represents an important initiation step in the development of atherosclerosis. Recently, we reported about protection of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS)-derived high-output NO in endothelial cells. Because iNOS activity critically depends on the availability of its substrate l-arginine, the present(More)
The inhibition of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression via antisense oligonucleotides (AS-ODN) may represent a highly specific tool. Endothelial cells (EC) represent prime candidate cells for in vivo application, and we therefore aimed at optimizing this technique for effectiveness and specificity in primary nontransformed rat EC.
