[The expression of tyrosine-kinase receptor flk-1 and hypoxic pulmonary vascular remodeling in the lung of rats exposed to hypoxia].


OBJECTIVE To assess the role of tyrosine-kinase receptor flk-1 in the development of hypoxic pulmonary vascular remodeling. METHODS We divided 20 male Wistar rats into two groups(control vs hypoxia) and exposed them to normoxic condition and isobaric hypoxia for 3 weeks respectively. The pulmonary artery pressure was measured by right cardiac… (More)
