BACKGROUND Endothelial cell (EC) proliferation is essential in vascular repair after injury to the vessel wall. Impaired EC proliferation may be an important factor contributing to vessel wall disease. Nitric oxide (NO) inhibits proliferation of many cells, including smooth muscle cells (SMC). We tested the hypothesis that NO inhibits EC proliferation and… CONTINUE READING
