Nicotine and cotinine affect the release of vasoactive factors by trophoblast cells and human umbilical vein endothelial cells.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To examine nicotine (N) and cotinine (C) effects on trophoblast cells (TCs) and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) secretion of soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase (sFlt-1), soluble endoglin (sENG), placental growth factor (PlGF), transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).
