Hyperglycemia is postulated to cause chronic changes in the vasculature of diabetic patients, suggesting structural or genetic alterations. We have characterized the glucose induced alterations of gene expression in cultured bovine aortic smooth muscle cells using the recently developed mRNA differential display method. After five days of incubation with(More)
Aberrant activity of transcription factors in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) results in the spontaneous secretion of various cytokines and chemokines. Among them, IL-8, owing to its angiogenic activity, promotes the growth of OSCCs. In the present study, we examined the role of IL-8 secreted by OSCCs, on the angiogenic activity of monocytic THP1 cells.(More)
