Proliferative effect of lipoprotein lipase on human vascular smooth muscle cells.

Abstract

Vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation is a key event in the development and progression of atherosclerotic lesions. Accumulating evidence suggests that lipoprotein lipase (LPL) produced in the vascular wall may exert proatherogenic effects. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of LPL on VSMC proliferation. Incubation of growth… (More)
