[The expression of the apoptosis-related genes in calcified vessels].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To observe the expression of the apoptosis genes in calcified vessels. METHODS Vascular calcification model was established in rats by using vitamin D3 and nicotine. Vascular calcium content, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, 45Ca uptake and the content of osteocalcin in vessels were measured. Apoptosis was measured by TUNEL method, DNA… (More)
