Certain drastic behavioral modifications by arterial wall smooth muscle cells (SMC) have been considered key steps in the formation of atherosclerotic lesions: massive migration of SMC from the media to the intima layer of the vessel, dedifferentiation of SMC to proliferating phenotype, and increased secretion of inflammatory cytokines as a response to inflammatory stimuli. We investigated the anti-atherogenic effects of naturally occurring compounds (ascorbic acid, green tea extract, lysine… 
Extracellular Matrix-Mediated Control of Aortic Smooth Muscle Cell Growth and Migration by a Combination of Ascorbic Acid, Lysine, Proline, and Catechins
TLDR
The ECM produced under conditions of chronic essential nutrient deficiency can support proatherosclerotic SMC behavior and a combination of selected nutrients can counteract these adverse effects stronger than individual components.
Plant-Derived Micronutrients Suppress Monocyte Adhesion to Cultured Human Aortic Endothelial Cell Layer by Modulating Its Extracellular Matrix Composition
TLDR
Micronutrient-dependent reduction of monocyte adhesion to endothelium is partly mediated through specific modulation of ECM composition and properties.
Bioflavonoids Effectively Inhibit Smooth Muscle Cell-Mediated Contraction of Collagen Matrix Induced by Angiotensin II
TLDR
Different classes of bioflavonoids showed variable efficiency in inhibiting angiotensin II (ATII)-dependent collagen gel contraction by SMCs and have a strong potential in counteracting pathophysiological effects of ATII.
Extract from the leaf of nucifera reduced the development of atherosclerosis via inhibition of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration.
TLDR
Light is shed on the molecular mechanisms whereby the polyphenol-rich water extract of nucifera leaves could inhibit both proliferation and migration of VSMC, and it might serve as a potential anti-atherogenic agent.
Molecular mechanism of (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate on balloon injury-induced neointimal formation and leptin expression.
TLDR
In summary, balloon injury induces leptin expression in the carotid artery of rats, and EGCG inhibits leptin expression through the JNK/AP-1 pathway and also attenuates neointimal formation.
Inhibitory effects of an aqueous extract of Cornus kousa Burg. Leaves on TNF-α-induced chemokine expression and monocyte adhesion to human colonic epithelial cells
TLDR
An aqueous extract of Cornus kousa Burg leaves (ACK) showed significant antioxidant activity against diphenylpicrylhydrazyl radicals and TNF-α-generated reactive oxygen species, indicating that ACK may provide a potential benefit for the prevention and treatment of inflammatory diseases such as IBD.
The Effect of Ascorbic Acid on Proliferation of Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells and Intimal Hyperplasia
TLDR
Ascorbic acid reduces the intimal hyperplasia developing after vascular anastomoses, and is found to be a potent anti-oxidant with antiproliferative properties.
Molecular and Cellular Targets Affected by Green Tea Extracts in Vascular Cells
TLDR
Promising experimental evidence suggests that tea catechins, and in particular epigallocatechin-3-gallate from green tea, affect several key steps known to be involved in atherosclerosis development: they have antioxidative, vasculoprotective,Anti-thrombogenic, anti-fibrinolytic, anti -inflammatory, and anti-angiogenic effects.
The behavior of vascular smooth muscle cells and platelets onto epigallocatechin gallate-releasing poly(l-lactide-co-epsilon-caprolactone) as stent-coating materials.
TLDR
The results suggest that EGCG-releasing polymers can be effectively applied for fabricating an E GCG-eluting vascular stent to prevent in-stent restenosis and thrombosis.
Nutrient supplementation modulates angiotensin II-mediated atherosclerosis in ApoE KO mice.
TLDR
NM consumption prior to AngII administration in ApoE KO mice minimized aortic dissections, inflammatory monocyte recruitment to plaques, plaque mass and abdominal aorta dilation, making for a more stable plaque type.

L-Ascorbic Acid Stimulates Expression of Smooth Muscle-Specific Markers in Smooth Muscle Cells both In Vitro and In Vivo
TLDR
L-Asc and its long-lasting derivatives stimulated the production of smooth muscle-specific myosin heavy chain-1 (SM1) and calponin 1 in a dose-dependent manner in rat cultured VSMCs, and the elevated production was maintained for at least 2 weeks.
Ascorbate affects proliferation of guinea-pig vascular smooth muscle cells by direct and extracellular matrix-mediated effects.
TLDR
The direct and matrix-mediated effects of ascorbate on the proliferation rate of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) isolated from the guinea-pig aorta and its antioxidant/pro-oxidant effects and regulation of extracellular matrix composition are investigated.
Modulation of collagen synthesis by growth factors: the role of ascorbate-stimulated lipid peroxidation.
TLDR
Results indicate that regulation of collagen synthesis by ascorbic acid does not occur through altering the response to EGF or Il-1, and the effects of TGF-beta and FGF on collagen synthesis appear to be sensitive to lipid peroxidation.
α-tocopherol (vitamin E) regulates vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and protein kinase C activity
Abstract α-Tocopherol (vitamin E) protects against free radical damage, which has been implicated in aging, cancer initiation, and atherosclerosis. We have found that physiological concentrations of
Alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) regulates vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and protein kinase C activity.
TLDR
Physiological concentrations of alpha-Tocopherol specifically inhibited aorta smooth muscle cell proliferation and protein kinase C (PKC) activity and other water and lipid soluble antioxidants were inactive.
Regulation of collagen synthesis by ascorbic acid.
TLDR
The results suggest that collage polypeptide synthesis, posttranslational hydroxylations, and activities of the twohydroxylases are independently regulated by ascorbate.
Matrix metalloproteinases and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
The increased expression and activity of several MMPs in a range of pathological processes, such as inflammation and ventricular remodelling after myocardial infarction, might indicate that they play a role in the pathophysiology and progression of atherosclerotic disease.
Solution to the Puzzle of Human Cardiovascular Disease : Its Primary Cause is Ascorbate Deficiency Leading to the Deposition of Lipoprotein ( a ) and Fibrinogen / Fibrin in the Vascular Wall
Human cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the result of the accumulation of lipopro-tein(a), Lp(a), rather than of low density lipoprotein (LDL), in the vascular wall. It 1. Linus Pauling Institute of
Absence of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 reduces atherosclerosis in low density lipoprotein receptor-deficient mice.
TLDR
Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 plays a unique and crucial role in the initiation of atherosclerosis and may provide a new therapeutic target in this disorder.
Tea catechins prevent the development of atherosclerosis in apoprotein E-deficient mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that chronic ingestion of tea extract prevents the development of atherosclerosis without changing the plasma lipid level in apoE-deficient mice, probably through the potent antioxidative activity of the tea.
