Different invasion phenotypes of Campylobacter isolates in Caco-2 cell monolayers.
TLDR
There are significantly different 'invasion' phenotypes among Campylobacter strains involving different degrees of intracellular invasion, and either different rates of transcellular trafficking or, alternatively, paracellular trafficking. Expand
Selective isolation of rat aortic wall layers and their cell types in culture--application to converting enzyme activity measurement.
TLDR
In the rat aorta, ACE was present not only in the intimal endothelial cell lining, but also in the media and the adventitia, and ACE expression seems to be more constitutive in endothelial cells and more inducible in smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts. Expand
ACE in three tunicae of rat aorta: expression in smooth muscle and effect of renovascular hypertension.
TLDR
In aortas of two-kidney, one-clip hypertensive rats, there was an increase in ACE mRNA estimated by ribonuclease protection assay and in ACE activity at 15 days and 1 and 3 mo after clipping corresponding to a 1.5- to 2-fold increase in the ACE activity of both the media and the adventitia compared with sham-operated rats. Expand
Shear stress induces angiotensin converting enzyme expression in cultured smooth muscle cells: possible involvement of bFGF.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the increase in ACE activity was due to an elevation in ACE mRNA level in response to a 10 dynes/cm2 shear stress for 24 h, suggesting that bFGF could be one of the potential inductors of ACE expression in the stressed smooth muscle cells. Expand
Circulating and cellular markers of endothelial dysfunction with aging in rats.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that aging modifies the expression of endothelial markers implicated in the regulation of vasomotor tone, which could contribute to the increased risk of pathological processes within the arterial wall associated with aging. Expand

The vasodilatory effect of endogenous nitric oxide is a major counter-regulatory mechanism in the spontaneously hypertensive rat
TLDR
Basal release of NO does not appear to be impaired in SHR, but represents a major counter-regulatory mechanism in this genetic model of arterial hypertension. Expand
[Vasodilator effect of nitric oxide is a necessary counter-regulation in the spontaneously hypertensive rat].
The chronic inhibition of NO-synthase by NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME, a L-arginine analogue) induces a dose-dependent decrease in aortic cGMP and an increase in blood pressure. We usedExpand
Role of monoclonal antibody J-23 in inducing acrosome reactions in capacitated mouse spermatozoa.
TLDR
The data indicate that the acrosome reaction can be induced in capacitated spermatozoa in the absence of zona glycoproteins. Expand
HYPERPROLIFERATION OF AORTIC SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS AND FIBROBLASTS FROM YOUNG SHR RATS IS NOT SHARED BY ENDOTHELIAL CELLS
TLDR
To study the hypertensive genotypic influence on growth kinetics of the three aortic wall cell types, a large number of aorta-based cell types were selected for study. Expand
