- Nitric oxide reversibly inhibits the migration of cultured vascular smooth muscle cellsR Sarkar
Department of Physiology, University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor 48109 0622, USA
Circ Res 78:225-30. 1996..These findings indicate that NO reversibly inhibits VSMC migration independent of proliferation or cytotoxicity, a novel mechanism by which both endogenous and pharmacological NO may alter vascular pathology...
- Does nitric oxide regulate smooth muscle cell proliferation? A critical appraisalR Sarkar
Department of Surgery, University of California Los Angeles Medical Center, USA
J Vasc Res 35:135-42. 1998..This review critically examines the experimental and clinical evidence that supports a role for NO as a modulator of smooth muscle cell proliferation, with an emphasis on the multiple mechanisms by which NO acts on vascular lesions...
