OBJECTIVE The role of hemoglobin and myoglobin in the cardiovascular system is well established, yet other globins in this context are poorly characterized. Here, we examined the expression and function of cytoglobin (CYGB) during vascular injury. APPROACH AND RESULTS We characterized CYGB content in intact vessels and primary vascular smooth muscle (VSM… CONTINUE READING
