The classification and prognosis of EBV-related smooth muscle
tumors are controversial.
A smooth muscle
-predominant or fat-predominant angiomyolipoma may be confused with a smooth muscle
or a lipomatous tumor.
A recent report by an Italian group suggests that HIV can infect arterial smooth muscle
cells, Schecter notes.
Well-documented observations that smooth muscle
cells can contract to 60% of rest length, and can return to their rest length with the help of their internal structure, suggest that the cytoskeleton must be highly adaptable to cell-shape changes.
actin immunohistochemical stain highlighted the smooth muscle
cells, confirming the diagnosis of benign leiomyoma (Figure 1b).
Hai subjected rat and primary human vascular smooth muscle
cells to prolonged (six hours) nicotine treatment, enabling the cells to form podosome rosettes in response to Protein Kinase C (PKC) activation, which controls protein phosphorylation in signal transduction cascades.
2+] mobilization might be involved in the inhibitory effects of magnolol on smooth muscle
contractions in porcine trachea and in rat uterus (Ko et al.
The American Thoracic Society's 2013 International Conference in Philadelphia was the site of a presentation concerning the ability of compounds that occur in ginger to relax airway smooth muscle
tissue, which is constricted during asthma attacks.
Immunohistochemical stains were performed with the following markers: cytokeratin AE1/AE3, keratin (CK) 34[beta]e12, CK5/6, p63, anaplastic lymphoma kinase 1, smooth muscle
actin, desmin, CD68 (Figure 2), and S100 protein.
The structure of the small intestine consists of a layer of cells, a mucosal lining, a connective tissue support (submucosa), and a fine submucosal smooth muscle
Benign smooth muscle
cell lesions are frequently found in a diversity of body organs, such as the breast, gastrointestinal tract, kidney, bladder, and skin (1), but they are extremely rare in the spermatic cord or paratesticular tissue of the male genital tract.

Our results show that bone marrow is an excellent source of adult stem cells containing smooth muscle
and endothelial cells, and that these stem cells can be used in regenerative medicine for cardiovascular applications" explains Stelios T.
Two main cell types are involved in plaque rupture, smooth muscle
cells and inflammatory white blood cells, called macrophages.
The xanthine group has a number of general physiological effects in humans, including central nervous system stimulation, Cardiac muscle stimulation, diuresis, bronchial, uterine, and vascular smooth muscle
relaxation, peripheral and coronary vasodilation, and cerebral vasoconstriction.
