Nitric oxide synthase inhibition reveals differences in the nitric oxide pathway in previously laminitic ponies. (2022)
Journal Article
Finding, E., Elliott, J., Harris, P., & Menzies-Gow, N. (2022). Nitric oxide synthase inhibition reveals differences in the nitric oxide pathway in previously laminitic ponies. Research in Veterinary Science, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rvsc.2022.05.012

Previously laminitic (PL) ponies are reported to have higher blood pressure than non laminitic (NL) ponies. This relative hypertension may be related to endothelial cell dysfunction, similar to humans with metabolic syndrome. To investigate the relat...

Atherosclerosis is characterised by focal accumulations of lipid within the arterial wall, thought to arise from effects of haemodynamic wall shear stress (WSS) on endothelial permeability. Identifying pathways that mediate effects of shear on permea... Read More about S1P in the development of atherosclerosis: roles of haemodynamic wall shear stress and endothelial permeability.

The zebrafish cardiac endothelial cell – roles in development and regeneration (2021)
Journal Article
Pellet-Many, C., Lowe, V., & Wisniewski, L. (2021). The zebrafish cardiac endothelial cell – roles in development and regeneration. Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease,

In zebrafish, the spatiotemporal development of the vascular system is well described due to its stereotypical nature. However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms orchestrating post embryonic vascular development, the maintenance of vascular homeo...
