Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells: Healing Wounds and Impacting Cardiovascular Health

Smooth Muscle Cells

Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells and Phenotype Switching Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) are specialized cell types found in the walls of many organs, including the stomach, small and large intestines, bladder, uterus, and blood vessels. In particular, the SMCs…

Smooth Muscle and Endothelial Cells: Their Critical Role in Blood Flow and Vascular Homeostasis

Smooth Muscle Cells

Large Vessel Endothelial and Smooth Muscle Cells The vessels that make up the circulatory system are multi-layered complex organs. Arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the tissues of the body and veins carry de-oxygenated blood…

Studies Investigate Role of Smooth Muscle Cells in Vascular Function and Disease

Smooth Muscle Cells

Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells Regulate Vessel Homeostasis and Dysfunction Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) are found in blood vessel walls and regulate various aspects of vessel homeostasis, including contraction, dilation, and vessel remodeling. VSMCs can exist as one…

Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells: Regulators of Blood Vessel Function

Smooth Muscle Cells

Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) are present in most contractile organs, including the bladder, gastrointestinal tract, and blood vessels. Smooth muscle cells in blood vessels are termed vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), and are responsible for maintaining blood pressure…

Smooth Muscle Cells: Contractile Controllers

Smooth Muscle Cells

  Smooth muscle cells are located in many organs throughout the body, most notably in the vasculature, but also in the bladder, uterus, and gastrointestinal system. They regulate contraction in these organs, and are of particular importance in…

Smooth Muscle Cells in Atherosclerosis and the Latest Research

Smooth Muscle Cells

Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) are found in many organs, including the GI tract, uterus, bladder, and vasculature. In particular, vascular SMCs (VSMCs) are found within vessel walls, and their contractile function is critical for maintaining appropriate blood pressure…

Smooth Muscle Cell Studies: The Force Behind Contraction

Smooth Muscle Cells

Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) reside in the outer layers of blood vessels and other contractile organs, including the bladder, uterus, respiratory tract, and gastrointestinal tract. SMCs contract involuntarily, and molecular motors such as myosin, and the actin cytoskeleton,…

Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells and the Latest Research Studies

Smooth Muscle Cells

Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) line blood vessels, providing a structural foundation and controlling vessel constriction and relaxation, which regulates blood flow and pressure. Vascular smooth muscle cell contraction is regulated by multiple factors, including mechanical, chemical, and…

Smooth Muscle Cells — The Involuntary Muscle Cells

Smooth Muscle Cells

Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) are involuntary, non-striated muscle cells that line the insides of hollow organs such as arteries, lungs, bladder, the digestive system, and the reproductive system. SMC function is controlled by the autonomic nervous system (whereas…

Why Some Smooth Muscle Cells Out-Perform Other SMCs

Smooth Muscle Cells

Lifeline® has optimized and cell tested a medium specifically for use with smooth muscle cells from both vascular and lymphatic tissues. VascuLife® SMC Complete Kit for smooth muscle cell culture includes VascuLife® basal medium and VascuLife® SMC LifeFactors®…
