Vascular Responses to Pathogens focuses on the growing research from leaders in the field for both the short and long-term impact of pathogens on the vasculature. It discusses various organisms, including bacteria, parasites, and viruses, and their role in key events leading to vascular disease.

    A crucial issue in physiology and pathophysiology is to better understand the mechanisms that drive vascular health and disease. In this direction, the endothelial layer, once considered to be inert, is increasingly being recognized as a critical component of vascular health. This layer is, by virtue of its location, an interface between flowing blood and the tissue and is thus a converging. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), abundantly expressed in the lung, is required for the survival of endothelial cells, and as such was felt to be critical to the alveolar maintenance program.

Ang2 is vital for endothelial cell physiology and plays a central role in vascular-related diseases, by regulating endothelial permeability and angiogenic functions. Here, we summarized the current knowledge on Ang2-induced effects on blood and lymphatic endothelial cells, its role in vascular-related diseases, and provided a general overview.

In vitro and preclinical data implicate increased cellular senescence as a driver of age-related vascular endothelial dysfunction (4, 10, 15, 23, 24, 31, 33, 34).

To our knowledge, the present study is the first to evaluate markers of cellular senescence in the vascular endothelium in primary (i.e., noncultured) ECs obtained from human subjects. The vascular endothelium has become an increasing focus of research over the last 15 years. Nitric oxide and endothelin appear to have important and opposing actions on vascular tone, smooth muscle proliferation and platelet/monocyte activation, and endothelial dysfunction affecting the L-arginine/nitric oxide and endothelin systems both appear to be crucial to atherogenesis and to the.

The realization that EETs, in particu EET, can activate large conductance Ca 2+-activated K + channels (BK Ca) on vascular smooth muscle cells to elicit hyperpolarization and relaxation led to their identification as a class of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor or endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF.

Abstract. For a long time it was believed that the endothelium was just an inert layer covering all endovascular surfaces. In the last 40 years, research on endothelium has blossomed and its results have illuminated our comprehension of vessel physiology, blood circulation, and several mechanisms underlying atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, and aging among others.

Taken together, these properties indicate a likelihood that the endothelin system is of functional importance in human cardiovascular physiology, and have attracted major attention to the possibility that endothelin-1 may play a role in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and, hence, that endothelin antagonists may prove useful.

[David Webb; P Vallance;] -- Endothelial dysfunction is now regarded as an early marker of vascular disease and therefore an important target for therapeutic intervention. Angiopoietins 1–4 (Ang1–4) represent an important family of growth factors, whose activities are mediated through the tyrosine kinase receptors, Tie1 and Tie2.

The best characterized are angiopoietin-1 (Ang1) and angiopoietin-2 (Ang2). Ang1 is a potent angiogenic growth factor signaling through Tie2, whereas Ang2 was initially identified as a vascular disruptive agent with antagonistic.

Endothelin is a amino acid long peptide that is a vasoconstrictor produced from endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC), macrophages, and the renal medulla. They are known to produce endothelin-1 (ET-1) that acts on the receptors ETA and ETB.

These receptors are G-protein coupled cell-surface receptors, and ETA is mainly present on smooth muscle cells. Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) play important roles not only in the physiological functions of the blood vessels, such as vasoconstriction, vasodilatation and extracellular matrix production, but also in the pathogenesis of vascular diseases, particularly atherosclerosis and hypertension.

VSMCs are mostly of mesodermal origin, although some are of neuroectodermal origin, for example. Hypertension remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and significantly impacts the risk of all major cardiovascular events, including stroke, sudden cardiac death, coronary heart disease, heart failure, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and peripheral vascular disease.
