Homocysteine induces phosphatidylserine exposure in cardiomyocytes through inhibition of Rho kinase and flippase activity.


AIMS Increased levels of homocysteine (Hcy) form an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. In a previous study we have shown that Hcy induced phosphatidylserine (PS) exposure to the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane in cardiomyocytes, inducing a pro-inflammatory phenotype. In the present study the mechanism(s) involved in Hcy-induced PS… (More)
