Immunohistochemical techniques localize basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF) in endothelial and smooth muscle cells of the common carotid artery. Thus, we studied the effect in rats of basic FGF infused for 14 days onto the adventitia or into the media in vivo. In untreated rats, the adventitial layer is uniform, and few vessels are observed in cross… CONTINUE READING
