Overexpression of the β2AR gene improves function and re-endothelialization capacity of EPCs after arterial injury in nude mice

Proliferation and migration of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play important roles in restoring vascular injuries. β2 adrenergic receptors (β2ARs) are widely expressed in many tissues and have a beneficial impact on EPCs regulating neoangiogenesis. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of overexpressing β2ARs in infused peripheral… CONTINUE READING
