Hyperproliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) is critically involved in the onset of atherosclerosis and restenosis. Although caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE, 1), one of the main constituents of honeybee propolis, has been shown to exert a beneficial effect in models of vascular injury in vivo, detailed mechanistic investigations in vascular(More)
trans-Resveratrol (RV), a polyphenolic stilbene derivative found in grape skin and other food products, has been proposed to exert beneficial effects in cardiovascular disease. Our group has shown previously that RV inhibits angiotensin II (Ang II)-induced Akt activation and, consequently, vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) hypertrophy. In this work, to(More)
