The regulatory expression of procollagen COOH-terminal proteinase enhancer in the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells.

Abstract

Intimal hyperplasia following arterial endothelial denudation results in large part from the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) and matrix accumulation. Procollagen COOH-terminal proteinase enhancer (PCPE) binds procollagen COOH-propeptides and potentiates procollagen COOH-proteinase activity to cleave COOH-propeptides of procollagens I… (More)
