This could reflect an inhibition of PGI(2) synthesis in the endothelium although in these cells mainly COX-1 is expressed. Inflammation and stress induce COX-2 in smooth muscle cells which could have happened in patients with cardiac diseases. Herein, we show that also cardiomyocytes contain PGI(2) synthase in intercalated discs as a third source of PGI(2) in the cardiovascular system. Another aim of this study was to explain the finding that PGI(2) synthase in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-treated smooth muscle cells, in contrast to endothelial cells, is resistant to nitration and inhibition by peroxynitrite. By using redox cyclers, the nitration occurred and confirmed our previous hypothesis that a high peroxidative activity of such cells keeps peroxynitrite below the effective levels of 50 nM. Considering enhanced oxidative stress in aged vessels, we postulated and verified that endothelial dysfunction in aged vessels is due to nitration and inhibition of PGI(2) synthase. Such data underline the role of PGI(2) as a potent mediator for regaining and maintaining the normal resting state of cells in a COX-2 dependent fashion.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-05T16:02:32Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Schildknecht, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2005</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Klumpp, Georg</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/38759"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:title>Prostacyclin in the cardiovascular system : new aspects and open questions</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Nastainczyk, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schildknecht, Stefan</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-05T16:02:32Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Bachschmid, Markus</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Nastainczyk, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Klumpp, Georg</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Ullrich, Volker</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Ullrich, Volker</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Bachschmid, Markus</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
