In vascular smooth muscle cells paricalcitol prevents phosphate-induced Wnt/β-catenin activation
(American Journal of Physiology, 2012)
The present study investigates the differential effect of two vitamin D receptor agonists, calcitriol and paricalcitol, on human aortic smooth muscle cells calcification in vitro. Human vascular smooth muscle cells were ...
TGF-β Prevents Phosphate-Induced Osteogenesis through Inhibition of BMP and Wnt/β-Catenin Pathways
(Public Library of Science, 2014)
Background: Transforming growth factor-b (TGF-b) is a key cytokine during differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) into vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). High phosphate induces a phenotypic transformation of ...
