Reduced glutathione prevents nitric oxide-induced apoptosis in vascular smooth muscle cells.

Abstract

The control of medial and neointimal growth, in which vascular smooth muscle (VSM) plays a central role, is most important to the development of hypertension and atherosclerosis, respectively. Growth of vascular smooth muscle cells is regulated by a number of factors, including the vasodilator nitric oxide (NO). In addition, NO modulates intracellular thiol… (More)
