We have recently characterised a 60-kDa muscle-specific phosphoglucomutase-related protein (PGM-RP) which is expressed predominantly in adult visceral and vascular smooth muscle. Here we show that the adult vascular smooth muscle cell line PAC1, which retains the capacity to synthesise metavinculin (a marker of the contractile phenotype) also expressed PGM… CONTINUE READING
