Vascular smooth cell proliferation in perfusion culture of porcine carotid arteries.

Liao D, Lin PH, Yao Q, Chen C (2008) Vascular smooth cell proliferation in perfusion culture of porcine carotid arteries. Biochem Biophys Res Commun 372(4):668-673. doi: 10.1016/j.bbrc.2008.05.117

Summary: Basic fibroblast growth factor is highly effective in stimulating smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation. The authors used FGF-SAP (Cat. #IT-38) to help characterize a model of vascular SMC proliferation with porcine carotid arteries. Arteries isolated from pigs were cultured under several different conditions, one of which included FGF-SAP at a concentration of 0.4 nM. In all cases the arteries maintained viability for up to 96 hours. SMC proliferation was drastically reduced in the arteries treated with FGF-SAP. [Note, FGF-SAP is not ATS.]
