Lectin-like oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1), the principal receptor for oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) in vascular endothelial cells (ECs), has recently been suggested to exert a pivotal role in atherogenesis, possibly by mediating ox-LDL-evoked endothelial dysfunction. On the other hand, LOX-1 expression seems to strongly(More)
In the last few decades, cholinergic connections located into posterior hypothalamus (PH) have been implicated in the central regulation of blood pressure (BP). Here we investigated the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the blood pressure response elicited by infusion of physostigmine into PH of normotensive rats. In freely moving rats, physostigmine (60-200 nM)(More)
