Exogenous nitric oxide inhibits mesangial cell adhesion to extracellular matrix components.

Abstract

Interactions of mesangial cells (MCs) with components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) profoundly influence the MC phenotype, such as attachment, contraction, migration, survival and proliferation. Here, we investigated the effects of exogenous nitric oxide (NO) on the process of MC adhesion to ECM molecules. Incubation of rat MCs with the NO donor S… (More)
