Cyclooxygenase-2 induction by bradykinin in aortic vascular smooth muscle cells.

Abstract

Vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration play an important role in the pathophysiology of several vascular diseases, including atherosclerosis. Prostaglandins that have been implicated in this process are synthesized by two isoforms of cyclooxygenase (COX), with the expression of the regulated COX-2 isoform increased in atherosclerotic… (More)
