Reactivity of gomerular afferent and efferent arterioles in renal hypertension.
During the development of renal hypertension structural alterations of glomerular vessels and the selective vascular responses to vasoactive agents would lead to an increasedglomerular capillary pressure.
Metabolic characteristics of cells cultured from human umbilical blood vessels: Comparison with 3T3 fibroblasts
It is concluded that the metabolism of umbilical vascular cells in culture reflects that of the parent tissue but is different from that of either vascular or nonvascular fibroblasts.
Oral use of interferon-alpha stimulates ISG-15 transcription and production by human buccal epithelial cells.
It is concluded that orally administered IFN-alpha exerts its immunomodulatory effects in humans in part by upregulating the production of ISG-15 by BEC, thereby enhancing the immune reactivity of mucosa-associated lymphocytes.
Extravasation of macromolecules and vascular reactivity of microvessels in response to nicotine in the hamster.
It is indicated that nicotine can modulate histamine-induced extravasation of macromolecules but has no effect on diameter of arterioles in the non-adrenergically innervated vascular beds studied.
Osteopontin Inhibits Interleukin-1β-stimulated Increases in Matrix Metalloproteinase Activity in Adult Rat Cardiac Fibroblasts
OPN may play a key role in collagen deposition during myocardial remodeling following MI by modulating cytokine-stimulated MMP activity, at least in part, via the involvement of PKC-ζ.
Microvascular Pressure Distribution and Responses of Pulmonary Allografts and Cheek Pouch Arterioles in the Hamster to Oxygen
The results showed the two tissues to be remarkably different, and the characteristics of this pulmonary microcirculation are such that it is a unique model for further physiological and pharmacological studies.
Direct Evidence for the Presence of a Different Converting Enzyme in the Hamster Cheek Pouch
It is concluded that the vasculature of the hamster cheek pouch converts significant amounts of A I to AII by a route that does not involve kininase II.
