    Vascular smooth muscle cell contractile function and mechanotransduction

    Sultan Ahmed, Derek T. Warren

    Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) are the predominant cell type in the arterial wall and normally adopt a quiescent, contractile phenotype to regulate vascular tone. In the arterial wall, VSMCs are exposed to multiple mechanical cues, including stretch and matrix stiffness, which regulate VSMC... Read more

    Risk factors for atherosclerosis and vascular calcification in patients with type 2 diabetes on long-term hemodialysis

    Tatyana Archakova, Liudmila Nedosugova

    Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is a risk factor for the progression of cardiovascular mortality, exacerbated by the development of chronic renal failure secondary to diabetic nephropathy, which requires long-term hemodialysis (LTH). However, in the case of LTH cardiovascular mortality exceeds that... Read more

    Thrombospondins and remodeling of the tumor microenvironment

    Olga Stenina-Adognravi, Santoshi Muppala, Jasmine Gajeton

    Vascular remodeling defines cancer growth and aggressiveness. Although cancer cells produce pro-angiogenic signals, the fate of angiogenesis critically depends on the cancer microenvironment. Composition of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and tumor inflammation determine whether a cancer will... Read more
