1. Transcriptome analysis on in vivo derived laser microbeam microdissected cells. Analysis of smooth muscle transcriptomes
Sammanfattning : Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) are found in the respiratory, urogenital, circulatory and digestive systems. They provide contractility and structural support for those organs and perform multiple physiological important functions, such as modulation of blood pressure, regulation of airway resistance, and control of gastrointestinal and genitourinary motility.

2. Modulaton of gene expression in human aortic smooth muscle cells by Porphyromonas gingivalis : a possible association between periodontitis and atherosclerosis
Sammanfattning : Porphyromonas gingivalis is a gram-negative, rod-shaped, and anaerobic bacterium that is involved in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. P. gingivalis produces a variety of virulence factors including gingipains and fimbriae. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Smooth muscle cells (SMC) are present in many internal organs such as the blood vessels and the gastrointestinal channel. Their main functions are to provide stability to the tissue and to provide contractile capability. SMC are not terminally differentiated but can switch between several phenotypes, which is also known as phenotypic modulation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The vascular wall is an active, elastic and integrated organ made up of cellular and extracellular matrix (ECM) components. It is not a static organ; the components dynamically change and reorganize in response to physiological and pathological stimuli. Vascular injury induces a complex healing process, analogous to generalised wound healing. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) play a major role in cardiovascular diseases. In advanced atherosclerosis, blood flow is impaired due to reduced luminal diameter. Percutaneous vascular interventions, including balloon angioplasty and stent-application are commonly used for the re-establishment of luminal size and improvement of tissue perfusion. LÄS MER
