Interferon-gamma inhibits proliferation of rat vascular smooth muscle cells by nitric oxide generation.

Abstract

Interferon (IFN)-gamma inhibited the proliferation of rat vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) and increased the cyclic GMP (cGMP) concentration in the cells. The dose dependencies of the two effects were similar (IC50 = 4 U/ml for the anti-proliferation and EC50 = 3 U/ml for cGMP formation) and the effect of IFN-gamma was enhanced by tumor necrosis factor… (More)
