MMP-1 polymorphic expression in aortic endothelial cells


Matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) is involved in the degradation of extracellular matrix components and is thought to play a key role in atherogenesis. The objective of the present study was to determine: (1) whether MMP-1 differential gene expression observed in primary cultures of human aortic endothelial cells (HAEC) exposed to cigarette smoke… (More)
