Gene context of Carotid Artery, Common

  • We demonstrate that PON 1 (LL+ML) 55 is associated with plaques both at the bifurcation (OR=2.40; 95% CI 1.00-5.90) and at the common carotid artery (OR=2.75; 95% CI 1.01-7.50), and to the total number of plaques at any site (P<0.05) [33].
  • The left common carotid arteries of wild-type and FasL-deficient (gld) mice were ligated just proximal to the carotid bifurcation [34].
  • The common carotid artery of Hoxa3 homozygous mutants was absent or very short and therefore the internal and external carotid artery arose from a more proximal level than those of wild types [35].
  • The present study compared the vasculoprotective efficacy of acute and chronic endothelin (ET) ETA or dual ETA/B receptor antagonism in the rat common carotid artery (RCCA) model using BQ-123 and SB 209670 [36].
  • A perivascular collar was placed around the common carotid artery to accelerate lesion formation. eNOS gene transfer reduced lesion surface areas, intima/media ratios, and macrophage contents in the media at 5-week follow-up (p < 0.05) [37].
