Blood vessels respond to injury by initiating cell proliferation and migration that result in vascular lesion formation. To determine the roles of thrombin and the thrombin receptor in this process, we characterized thrombin receptor expression in normal and injured arteries, thrombin receptor-mediated smooth muscle cell mitogenesis, and the regulation of… CONTINUE READING
