Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is a potent stimulator of vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) migration, a process that contributes to the accumulation of SMC within atherosclerotic lesions. Our previous studies have shown that IGF-I increases the affinity of the alphaVbeta3 integrin toward ligands and that occupancy of this integrin is indispensable for IGF-I to stimulate cell migration. In this study, the role of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase) and mitogen-activated protein… CONTINUE READING
