OBJECTIVES Increased oxidative stress has been suggested to contribute to the functional impairment of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). The Forkhead box O transcription factors (FoxOs) are critical regulators involved in various cellular processes including cell apoptosis. Here, we investigated whether FoxOs are required in oxidative stress induced EPC(More)
Cell loss due to apoptosis induced by oxidative stress is a major hurdle for endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs)-based therapy. Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) plays important roles in many pathophysiological processes by deacetylating various substrates, including forkhead transcription factor (FOXO). However, after deacetylation, the fate of FOXO protein remains to be(More)
