  • Fish oil has been reported as having beneficial effects on cardiovascular diseases. Elevated serum lipoproteins, prostaglandins and intracellular free calcium concentrations [( Ca2+]i) of the vasculature and thus the phosphoinositide (PI) turnover may be involved in the pathogenesis of these disorders. Therefore, the effect of fish oil on the potency of both low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and angiotensin II (AII) to stimulate the PI turnover in cultured rat vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC… CONTINUE READING
