Hypoxia and carbon monoxide in the vasculature.

Abstract

Hypoxia is sensed by all mammalian cells and elicits a variety of adaptive and pathophysiological responses at the molecular and cellular level. For the pulmonary vasculature, hypoxia causes increased vasoconstriction and vessel-wall remodeling. These responses are mediated by complex intracellular cascades leading to altered gene expression and cell-cell… (More)
