We evaluated by means of (1) indirect immunofluorescence and (2) densitometric analysis of stained sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gels the distribution and amount of vimentin and desmin in the aortic media and intima of normal rats and of rats in which the endothelium had been removed by means of an inflated balloon catheter. According to previous reports, in normal aorta vimentin was found in endothelial cells and in the majority of smooth muscle cells, and desmin was found in several… CONTINUE READING
