Short time tripterine treatment enhances endothelial progenitor cell function via heat shock protein 32.


The dysfunction of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) limits their potential for the treatment of ischemia and atherosclerosis. Therefore, we investigated the effect of tripterine on EPC function and examined the underlying mechanisms. The effect of tripterine, an active component of Tripterygium wilfordii Hook, on the enhancement of EPC function and the… (More)
