Soluble Guanylyl Cyclase Is Reduced in Airway Smooth Muscle Cells From a Murine Model of Allergic Asthma
(Soluble guanylyl cyclase is reduced in airway smooth muscle cells from a murine model of allergic asthma". Fabiola Pláceres Uray, Ramona González de Alfonzo, Itala Lippo de Bécemberg and Marcelo J. Alfonzo World Allergy Organization Journal WAOJ volume 3-Issue 12, pp:271-276.December 2010, 2012)
Dengue Virus Infection of Primary Human Smooth Muscle Cells
Dengue virus (DENV) infection of humans is presently the most important arthropod-borne viral global threat, for which no suitable or reliable animal model exists. Reports addressing the effect of DENV on vascular components ...
Oxidized Low-Density Lipoproteins Stimulate xtracellular Matrix Metalloproteinase Inducer (EMMPRIN) Release by Coronary Smooth Muscle Cells

Anatomy of smooth muscle cells in nonmalignant and malignant human prostate tissue
Differently graded areas of human prostate adenocarcinoma were examined after Masson's trichrome staining or immunohistochemistry for smooth muscle alpha-actin, type IV collagen and laminin. In addition, the ultrastructure ...
Modulation of smooth muscle cell function: Morphological evidence for a contractile to synthetic transition in the rat ventral prostate after castration
(Elsevier B.V., 2005-09-01)
In this study, we evaluated the involvement of rat ventral prostate smooth muscle cells (SMC) in secretory activity and whether this function is modulated after castration. Cell morphology was examined at both light and ...
Collagen fiber reorganization in the rat ventral prostate following androgen deprivation: A possible role for smooth muscle cells
BACKGROUND. Stroma plays an essential role in glandular function in different systems. In the prostate, it is responsible for the development and maintenance of the differentiated state of the epithelium. The marked reduction ...
Doxazosin Treatment Alters Stromal Cell Behavior and Increases Elastic System Fibers Deposition in Rat Prostate
Abnormal proliferative response of the carotid artery of spontaneously hypertensive rats after angioplasty may be related to the depolarized state of its smooth muscle cells
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2000-08-01)
Hypertension is one of the major precursors of atherosclerotic vascular disease, and vascular smooth muscle abnormal cell replication is a key feature of plaque formation. The present study was conducted to examine the ...
