Santa Barbara, CA) using silicon nitride cantilever (Olympus AC160 can-legends were. Western blot After treatments grew the cells on six-well plates in a lysis buffer with 1% Triton X-Triton scraped 1 , 5 M Tris ( pH 7.4), cantilever, the resonance frequency of 330 Bcr-Abl Inhibitors kHz in the air). Images (. 512 1 mM NaCl, 1 mM EGTA and 5 M NaF in distilled water 512 pixels) were treated with a typical sampling rate of 0.30.7 Hz and collected with a record of 0.30.8 V. Assessment of PV-1: Expression of mRNA by real-Ti diversity. The permeability T of the endothelial cells is determined by measuring the exchange of labeled dextran and registration of the electrical impedance. Variations of PV-1 expression were monitored by real-time PCR and immunocytochemistry.
Our data show that Ang II regulatory permeability t, PV-1 expression and caveolae formation in a dose-and Transient Independent Lates. These effects are mediated by AT1 receptor and p38 MAPK, and are very much Similar to those of VEGF. MATERIALS AND METHODS Isolation of endothelial cells and endothelial cells in culture were from human umbilical cord veins according to claim Jaffe . (17). Human umbilical vein Brie endothelial cells (HUVEC) were separated by collagenase treatment (Sigma, St. Louis, MO). The cells were grown on gelatin-coated SKS (Sigma), seeded F t and in M199 medium (Sigma) at 15% Fetal bovine serum (FBS, GIBCO Life Technologies, Burlington, ON, Canada) 1 IU ml penicillin (Gibco), 1 g ml streptomycin (GIBCO), 7.5 IU ml heparin (Merckle, Ulm, Germany), 2 ng ml epidermal growth factor (R & D Systems, Abington, UK), and 250 pg ml endothelial cell growth factor (R & D Systems), as completely Zoledronate RESISTANT medium designated. The cultures were incubated at 37 humidid in an atmosphere re with 5% C . The cells were Connt with 5% trypsin-EDTA (Gibco) were harvested for subculture. The cells of 24 passages were used for experiments.
Assessment of endothelial permeability t in vitro cells were cultured on gelatin Millicell One Tze nectin-coated culture plates (polycarbonate membranes with a pore E of 0.4 m, Millipore, Carrightwohill, Ireland) phenol red free M199 To achieve medium for 4 full days connce. In the measurements was complete medium with medium containing 5% FBS replaced. Each measurement was repeated at least 34 times, and there were three parallel samples in each experimental group. For permeability Tsmessungen cells were treated with different doses of ANG II or VEGF or vehicle. After 48 hours of treatment, the media were in the upper chambers with media that replaced 1 g ml FITC-dextran 40 (Sigma). Samples from both chambers were taken at 15, 30 and 45 min with FITC-dextran 40 concentrations determined. The concentration of FITC-Dextran 40 was determined with a Wallac Victor 142 ultilabel Counter 3 (Perkin Elmer, Wellesley, MA). The permeability was t of the monolayer with FITC-dextran 40 calculated that the electrical impedance as heart an index of endothelial permeability t Ver changes In the Durchl Permeability measure of endothelial cells to angiotensin II treatment or VEGF, were measured in real time using of electrical cell substrate impedance sensing (ECIS) (Applied Biophysics, Troy, NY), as previously described (41). The cells were grown on gelatin connce EUR nectin-coated ECIS commodity culture (8W1E). Each well of a gold micro-electrode with a diameter of 25 and a reference electrode included. The electrodes were in an incubator (37, 5% C ) and with an ECIS Model 16 -Ger-run. Bearer hunter with 5% FBS for experimental treatments and after Equilibration period of 2 h, the cells were treated with 1 ANG II, 7, or 1 ng ml VEGF or vehicle.
