Adiponectin acts as an endogenous antithrombotic factor. However, the mechanisms underlying the inhibition of platelet aggregation by adiponectin still remain elusive. The present study was designed to test whether adiponectin inhibits platelet aggregation by attenuation of oxidative/nitrative stress. Adult rats were fed a regular or high-fat diet for 14(More)
Tet methylcytosine dioxygenase 2 (TET2) mediates the conversion of 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC). The loss of TET2 is associated with advanced atherosclerotic lesions. Our previous study showed that TET2 improves endothelial cell function by enhancing endothelial cell autophagy. Accordingly, this study determined the role of TET2(More)
