[Over-expression of the cellular repressor of E1A-stimulated genes inhibits the apoptosis of human vascular smooth muscle cells in vitro.].

To investigate the effects and molecular mechanisms of the cellular repressor of E1A-stimulated genes (CREG) on the apoptosis of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), the human internal thoracic artery-Shenyang (HITASY) cells were infected with sense-CREG [pLNCX(2)(+)/CREG] and antisense-CREG [pLXSN(-)/CREG] retrovirus respectively. The stably infected… CONTINUE READING
