Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease and the expression of adhesion molecules on vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) contributes to the progress of the disease. Pterostilbene (PT), a natural dimethylated analog of resveratrol from blueberries, has been shown to have a variety of biological activities including anti-inflammatory activity. However, the role of PT in vascular inflammation remains unknown. Therefore, in this study, we investigated the effect of PT on vascular… Expand

Inhibition of TNF-α-induced adhesion molecule expression by diosgenin in mouse vascular smooth muscle cells via downregulation of the MAPK, Akt and NF-κB signaling pathways.
TLDR
It is indicated that diosgenin inhibits the adhesive capacity of VSMC and the TNF-α-mediated induction of ICAM-1 and VCAM- 1 in VSMC by inhibiting the MAPK/Akt/NF-κB signaling pathway and ROS production, which may explain the ability of diOSgenin to suppress inflammation within the atherosclerotic lesion and modulate immune response. Expand
Stereocalpin A inhibits the expression of adhesion molecules in activated vascular smooth muscle cells.
TLDR
Stereocalpin A has the potential to exert a protective effect by modulating inflammation within the atherosclerotic lesion and is described as a new anti-inflammatory activity and mechanism owing to the negative regulation of TNF-α-induced adhesion molecule and MCP-1 expression, monocyte adhesion and ROS production in vascular smooth muscle cells.

Ohioensin F suppresses TNF-α-induced adhesion molecule expression by inactivation of the MAPK, Akt and NF-κB pathways in vascular smooth muscle cells.
TLDR
These results suggest a new mechanism of ohioensin F's anti-inflammatory action, owing to the negative regulation of TNF-α-induced adhesion molecule expression, monocyte adhesion and ROS production in vascular smooth muscle cells. Expand
Acetylbritannilactone suppresses lipopolysaccharide-induced vascular smooth muscle cell inflammatory response.
TLDR
Results indicate that ABL is a potent inhibitor of LPS-stimulated VSMC inflammatory responses through blockade of NF-kappaB activity and inhibition of inflammatory gene COX-2 expression. Expand
Pterostilbene inhibited tumor invasion via suppressing multiple signal transduction pathways in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
TLDR
It is reported that pterostilbene significantly suppressed 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA)-induced invasion, migration and metastasis of human hepatoma cells (HepG(2) cells). Expand
Pterostilbene protects vascular endothelial cells against oxidized low-density lipoprotein-induced apoptosis in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
PT might be a potential natural anti-apoptotic agent for the treatment of atherosclerosis by downregulating LOX-1-mediated activation through a pathway involving oxidative stress, p53, mitochondria, cytochrome c and caspase protease. Expand
Pterostilbene, a natural dimethylated analog of resveratrol, inhibits rat aortic vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation by blocking Akt-dependent pathway.
TLDR
It is suggested that the inhibition of pterostilbene to the cell proliferation and DNA synthesis of PDGF-BB-stimulated VSMCs may be mediated by the suppression of Akt kinase, and may be a potential anti-proliferative agent for the treatment of atherosclerosis and angioplasty restenosis. Expand

TLDR
Transient blockade of the VLA-4/VCAM-1 adhesion pathway by antibodies or peptides in apoE-/- or LDLR-/- mice reduced monocyte and lipid accumulation in lesions, suggesting that P-selectin, PSGL-1, V LA-4 and VCAM- 1 are the most important adhesion molecules involved in monocyte recruitment to atherosclerotic lesions. Expand
TNF-alpha and IL-4 synergistically increase vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 expression in cultured vascular smooth muscle cells.
TLDR
An increase of VCAM-1 expression on vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) results in increased adhesion of alpha4 integrin-positive lymphocytes, and the synergy between TNF-alpha and IL-4 appears to result from a cooperative transcriptional mechanism. Expand
Anti-inflammatory Action of Pterostilbene Is Mediated through the p38 Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Pathway in Colon Cancer Cells
TLDR
The data suggest that the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase cascade is a key signal transduction pathway for eliciting the anti-inflammatory action of pterostilbene in cultured HT-29 colon cancer cells. Expand
