After mkrosurgicaJ dissection of the thoracic aorta of normotensive rats, biochemical and morphological comparisons were performed between the intima-media and adventitia. The DNA content, wet weight, and dry defatted weight of the adventitia were half that of the intima-media. Collagen was the main component of the adventitia (collagen > nonfibrous protein > elastin) whereas elastin was the main protein in the intima-media (elastin > nonfibrous protein >collagen), and the results correlated… Expand
Urokinase Plasminogen Activator in Injured Adventitia Increases the Number of Myofibroblasts and Augments Early Proliferation
TLDR
It is concluded that uPA, which is upregulated in the injured adventitia, can augment adventitial cell accumulation, including myofibroblasts, and adventitia growth early after injury of the rat carotid artery adventitia by mechanisms involving proteolysis. Expand
The adventitia: the outs and ins of vascular disease.
TLDR
This issue's reviews and original publications highlight the emerging new paradigm of vascular inflammation, describing an inward progression of inflammation from the adventitia toward the intima. Expand
Catalase overexpression in aortic smooth muscle prevents pathological mechanical changes underlying abdominal aortic aneurysm formation.
TLDR
The data suggest that at the earliest stages of AAA development H( 2)O(2) is functionally important and is involved in the control of local variations in remodeling across the vessel wall and reduced elastin integrity at baseline may predispose the abdominal aorta to aneurysmal mechanical remodeling. Expand
Adventitial gene transfer of recombinant endothelial nitric oxide synthase to rabbit carotid arteries alters vascular reactivity.
TLDR
The hypothesis that adenovirus-mediated transfer of the gene for endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) to the adventitia alters vascular reactivity is investigated, as demonstrated by diminished contractile responses to phenylephrine and enhanced relaxations to calcium ionophore. Expand
Adventitia as a source of inducible nitric oxide synthase in the rat aorta.
TLDR
In vitro and in vivo studies indicate that the aortic adventitia is a potential source of NO, and suggest that the adventitial fibroblast may have an important paracrine role in regulating arterial structure and function. Expand

  • 2002
TLDR
The vascular adventitia is activated in a variety of cardiovascular disease states and has recently been shown to be a barrier to nitric oxide bioactivity, and clearer understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved will likely lead to therapeutic strategies aimed at preventing vascular dysfunction in diseases such as atherosclerosis. Expand
The role of the adventitia in vascular inflammation.
TLDR
It appears that the basic mechanisms of cellular activation and migration in vascular inflammation are highly conserved across a variety of cardiovascular disease states and that major inflammatory events begin in the adventitia. Expand
Effects of angiotensin II infusion and inhibition of nitric oxide synthase on the rat aorta.
TLDR
The data suggest that nitric oxide selectively influences macrophage association with the arterial wall, whereas Ang II and Nitric oxide may have opposing effects on arterial cell proliferation. Expand
Nitric oxide-induced increase in p21(Sdi1/Cip1/Waf1) expression during the cell cycle in aortic adventitial fibroblasts.

TLDR
Investigation of the expression of p21(Sdi1/Cip1/Waf1), one of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor proteins, could be regulated by nitric oxide and might account for the antiproliferative effect of NO implicate NO as a potential regulator of the cell cycle in aortic adventitial fibroblasts through a cGMP-mediated transcriptional mechanism involving the induction of p 21. Expand
Mechanism of action of the inhibitory effect of nifedipine on the growth of cultured aortic cells from spontaneously hypertensive and normotensive rats
TLDR
The results indicate that nifedipine inhibited cell proliferation and serum‐induced DNA synthesis by altering the cell cycle through different mechanisms in SHR and WKY fibroblasts and suggest the existence in aortic fibro Blasts of interactions between calcium channel blockers of the dihydropyridine series and the mitogenic signalling pathways of growth factors contained in serum.

TLDR
A linear relation among vessel dimensions and amounts of medial elastin and collagen and calculated wall tension is demonstrated and increases in both fibrous proteins were linearly related to increases in calculated mural stress. Expand

TLDR
The data demonstrated that the increase in vessel wall dimensions in this animal model of hypertension is due in part, during the acute phase, to an increase in the number of cells, particularly vascular smooth muscle cells. Expand

TLDR
A marked increase in arterial cyclic AMP precedes the initiation of DNA replication and collagen accumulation in vascular territories subjected to high blood pressure, suggesting the participation of this nucleotide in the vascular growth induced by hypertension. Expand

TLDR
Smooth muscle cell hypertrophy, not hyperplasia, was responsible for the increased mass of smooth muscle in aortas of Goldblatt hypertensive rats compared with normotensive controls, and this smooth muscle cellhypertrophy was accompanied by an increase in DNA ploidy. Expand

TLDR
Patterns of proliferation of cells of the artery wall varied in distribution with time, the presence of absence of traumatic changes seen by light microscopy, and the histological structure of the vessel did not differ from sham-operated animals. Expand
