Role of Ca2+ in diperoxovanadate-induced cytoskeletal remodeling and endothelial cell barrier function.

Diperoxovanadate (DPV), a potent inhibitor of protein tyrosine phosphatases and activator of tyrosine kinases, alters endothelial barrier function via signaling pathways that are incompletely understood. One potential pathway is Src kinase-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation of proteins such as cortactin that regulate endothelial cell (EC) cytoskeleton… CONTINUE READING
