Coronary calcification associates closely with cardiovascular risk, but its progress is accelerated in response to some interventions widely used to reduce risk. This paradox suggests that qualitative, not just quantitative, changes in calcification may affect plaque stability. To...
Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) contributes to coronary artery disease (CAD). EAT presents a specific lipidomic signature, showing increased ceramides and other proinflammatory lipids content. Besides, LPL (lipoprotein lipase) activity in EAT would contribute to its expansion,...
Thoracic aortic aneurysm is a life-threatening condition caused by weakening of the thoracic aorta wall, often developing silently until dissection or rupture occurs. Despite substantial efforts in the past decade, there have been no significant therapeutic advances to prevent or clinically...
As the third most common vascular disease, venous thromboembolism is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Pathogenesis underlying venous thrombosis is still not fully understood. Accumulating data suggest fibrin network structure and factor XIII-mediated crosslinking are major...
Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in atherosclerotic plaque take on multiple nonclassical phenotypes that may affect plaque stability and, therefore, the likelihood of myocardial infarction or stroke. However, the mechanisms by which these cells affect stability are only beginning to be...
Thrombin (via PAR [protease-activated receptor]-1 and PAR-4) and ADP (via P2Y12 receptors) are potent endogenous platelet activators implicated in the development of cardiovascular disease. We aimed to assess whether platelet pathways alter with aging.
Thoracic aortopathy associates with extracellular matrix remodeling and altered biomechanical properties. We sought to quantify the natural history of thoracic aortopathy in a common mouse model and to correlate measures of wall remodeling such as aortic dilatation or localized...
Secretory granules are key elements for platelet functions. Their biogenesis and integrity are regulated by fine-tuned mechanisms that need to be fully characterized. Here, we investigated the role of the phosphoinositide 5-kinase PIKfyve and its lipid products, PtdIns5P...
