Fluid shear stress has been revealed to differentially regulate endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) distribution in vessels. eNOS, a key enzyme in controlling nitric oxide (NO) release, has a crucial role in mediating oxidative stress, and resveratrol (RSV)‑mediated eNOS also attenuates oxidative damage and suppresses endothelial dysfunction.

BACKGROUND Studies indicate the dramatic reduction of shear stress (SS) within the rapamycin eluting stent (RES) segment of coronary arteries. It remains unclear about the role of rapamycin in endothelialization of stented arteries where SS becomes low. Since mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) pathway is involved in the antioxidative sestrins expression,(More)
OBJECTIVE Atherosclerotic lesions occur preferentially in the arterial branches, bifurcations and curvatures where shear stress is low. We aimed to study the possible mechanisms involved in low shear stress (LSS)-induced oxidative damage in vascular endothelial cells. METHODS Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) exposed for 60 min to simulated(More)
