Magnesium prevents [beta]-glycerophosphate-induced calcification in rat aortic vascular smooth muscle cells.
Human aortic vascular smooth muscle cells (HASMCs) were obtained from the National Infrastructure of Cell Line Resource (Beijing) and cultured in Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium (DMEM; Gibco) which contained 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS) and 1% penicillin-streptomycin, at 37[degrees]C in a humidified atmosphere with 5% C[O.sub.2].
Resveratrol inhibits rat aortic vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation via estrogen receptor dependent nitric oxide production.
Bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDM) and aortic vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) were isolated from [Casp3.sup.-/-][ApoE.sup.-/-] mice and treated with apoptosis inducers cycloheximide (CHX) (1 [micro]g/mL; 10 [micro]g/mL; 30 [micro]g/mL) and puromycin (PM) (1 [micro]g/mL; 10 [micro]g/mL; 30 [micro]g/mL), respectively, to validate their inability to undergo apoptosis.
In rat aortic vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), taurine acts as an antiproliferative and antioxidant agent.
Cell types were identified by using immunofluorescent staining for the pericyte cell marker smooth muscle cell alpha actin (SMCA), the endothelial cell marker Factor VIII, and the fibroblast cell marker Type IV collagen, as well as morphological comparisons with pure cultures of aortic vascular smooth muscle cells (AVSM) and aortic endothelial cells.
