Isolation of Murine Primary Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells
Authors:  Max Ole Hubert, Juan Rodriguez-Vita, Lena Wiedmann and Andreas Fischer, date: 02/05/2021, view: 1004, Q&A: 0

Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) have been cultured for decades to study the role of these cells in cardiovascular disorders. The most common source of VSMCs is the rat aorta. Here we show the adaptation of this method to isolate and culture

Development of the Deoxycorticosterone Acetate (DOCA)-salt Hypertensive Rat Model
Authors:  Nayara Pestana-Oliveira, David B. Nahey, Tim Johnson and John P. Collister, date: 08/05/2020, view: 2014, Q&A: 0
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 1.13 billion people worldwide have hypertension, a major factor responsible for premature death globally. The inherent multifactorial nature of hypertension makes its study difficult since the ...
