Perlecan is required to inhibit thrombosis after deep vascular injury and contributes to endothelial cell-mediated inhibition of intimal hyperplasia.


Perlecan, a heparan sulfate proteoglycan, has been suggested to be critical for regulation of vascular repair. We generated clones of endothelial cells expressing an antisense vector targeting domain III of perlecan. Transfected cells produced significantly less perlecan than parent cells and showed a reduced ability to inhibit the binding and mitogenic… (More)
