Platelet-derived growth factor-BB-induced suppression of smooth muscle cell differentiation.

Abstract

Previously, we demonstrated that treatment of postconfluent quiescent rat aortic smooth muscle cells (SMCs) with platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB dramatically reduced smooth muscle (SM) alpha-actin synthesis. In the present studies, we focused on the expression of two other SM-specific proteins, SM myosin heavy chain (SM-MHC) and SM alpha… (More)
