Little is known about the phenotypic changes that occur in vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) as the developing aorta undergoes the transition from a loosely organized, highly replicative tissue to a morphologically mature, quiescent tissue. In the present study, we have characterized the in vivo pattern of SMC replication during intrauterine and neonatal aortic development in the rat and have cultured and assessed the in vitro growth properties of embryonic, fetal, and neonatal vascular SMCs… CONTINUE READING
