Increased shedding of microvesicles from intimal smooth muscle cells in athero-prone areas of the human aorta: implications for understanding of the predisease stage.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE This study evaluated whether a change in the content of matrix microvesicles might occur at the preatherosclerotic stage. METHODS Applying quantitative electron microscopic and immunohistochemical analyses, two areas of grossly normal segments of the thoracic aorta were compared: atherosclerosis-prone (AP) areas, situated at the dorsal aspect of… (More)
