BACKGROUND Human endothelial progenitor cells (hEPC) correspond to a subtype of stem cells which, in the presence of angiogenic stimuli, can be mobilized from bone marrow to circulation and then recruited to the damaged endothelium, where they differentiate into mature endothelial cells. High-density lipoproteins (HDL) increase the level and functionality(More)
We studied the role of advanced glycosylation end products on the induction of nitric oxide synthase in peritoneal mouse macrophages previously exposed to modified BSA. A dose-dependent increment in the nitric oxide production induced by LPS and IFN-gamma was observed when cell cultures were pretreated with modified BSA for 48 hours. In addition, the up(More)
