  • alpha-Tocopherol, but not beta-tocopherol, negatively regulates proliferation of A7r5 vascular smooth muscle cells at physiological concentration. The HeLa cell line was not affected whereas the Chinese hamster ovary cell line (CHO) was slightly inhibited by both alpha-tocopherol and beta-tocopherol. In A7r5 cells alpha-tocopherol inhibited protein kinase C activity, and this correlated with inhibition of proliferation. beta-Tocopherol did not inhibit either protein kinase C or proliferation… CONTINUE READING
