ATP stimulates PGE(2)/cyclin D1-dependent VSMCs proliferation via STAT3 activation: role of PKCs-dependent NADPH oxidase/ROS generation.


Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) that function as synthetic units play important roles in cardiovascular diseases. Extracellular nucleotides, such as ATP, have been shown to act via activation of P2 purinoceptors implicated in various inflammatory diseases, we hypothesized that extracellular nucleotides contribute to vascular diseases via up-regulation… (More)
