Copper induces--and copper chelation by tetrathiomolybdate inhibits--endothelial activation in vitro.

Abstract

Endothelial activation with increased expression of cellular adhesion molecules and chemokines critically contributes to vascular inflammation and atherogenesis. Redox-active transition metal ions play an important role in vascular oxidative stress and inflammation. Therefore, the goal of the present study was to investigate the role of copper in… (More)
