Moderate consumption of red wine is associated with a decreased incidence of cardiovascular diseases in populations with relatively high amount of fat in the diet. However, the mechanisms involved in this protective effect are not completely understood. Here we show that moderate consumption of red wine (equivalent to 2 glasses/day in humans) but not(More)
OBJECTIVE Aging is associated with increased oxidative stress levels and impaired neovascularization following ischemia. CuZnSOD has an important role to limit oxidative stress in the vasculature. Here we investigated the role of CuZnSOD for the modulation of ischemia-induced neovascularisation during aging. METHODS AND RESULTS Hindlimb ischemia was(More)
There is increasing evidence that members of the natriuretic peptide family display sympathoinhibitory activity, but it remains uncertain which receptor pathway is implicated. We performed cyclic GMP production studies with chromaffin cells treated with either atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) or C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) and found that these cells(More)
