Roles for endothelial cell and macrophage Gch1 and tetrahydrobiopterin in atherosclerosis progression

Abstract:

GTP cyclohydrolase I (GTPCH) catalyses the first and rate-limiting reaction in the synthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4), an essential cofactor for nitric oxide synthases (NOS). Both eNOS and iNOS have been implicated in the progression of atherosclerosis, with opposing effects in eNOS and iNOS knockout mice. However, the pathophysiologic requirement for BH4 in regulating both eNOS and iNOS function, and the effects of loss of BH4 on the progression of atherosclerosis remains unknown.Hyperli...
