Induction of C-X-C Chemokine Receptor Type 7 (CXCR7) Switches Stromal Cell-derived Factor-1 (SDF-1) Signaling and Phagocytic Activity in Macrophages Linked to Atherosclerosis*
The discovery of CXCR7 as a new receptor for SDF-1 places many previously described SDF-1 functions attributed to CXCR4 in question, though whether CXCR7 acts as a signaling or “decoy” receptor has been in debate. It ...
The P2Y(2) Nucleotide Receptor Mediates Tissue Factor Expression in Human Coronary Artery Endothelial Cells
The discovery of the role of P2Y12 receptor in platelet aggregation leads to a new anti-thrombotic drug Plavix; however, little is known about non-platelet P2Y receptors in thrombosis. This study tested the hypothesis ...
