Alternative Titles:Pteridophyta, cryptogam, pteridophyte, seedless vascular plant, vascular cryptogam Lower vascular plant, formerly pteridophyte, also called vascular cryptogam, any of the spore-bearing vascular plants, including the ferns, club mosses, spike mosses, quillworts, horsetails, and whisk ferns. Once considered of the same evolutionary line, these plants were formerly placed in the single group Pteridophyta and were known as the ferns and fern allies. Continue reading

PPARs and Their Emerging Role in Vascular Biology …

Posted: September 20, 2018 at 8:42 am

AbstractFor many years, advances in understanding steroid hormone action typically proceeded through sequential stages that involved first identifying the role of a putative hormone, then isolating it, often from large quantities of body fluid, and ultimately identifying the nuclear receptor through which the cellular effects were being achieved (1). More recently, this stepwise progression has been reversed by modern molecular biology techniques allowing rapid identification of many genes as encoding nuclear receptors based on structural motifs even without any information regarding the functional role of these so called orphan receptors. This process has been termed reverse endocrinology (1). Continue reading

Invitation to the 3rd joint ESM-EVBO meeting 2019 April 15 18 2019, Maastricht, Netherlands Improving vascular health is an important goal to pursue, as cardio-vascular diseases account for almost half of all deaths in Europe. Disturbances in normal (micro)vascular biology are at the basis of many diseases. From classical cardiovascular diseases, like myocardial infarction and stroke, to cardiometabolic diseases, like dementia, cognitive decline, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, hypertension, and to cancer, post-surgical tissue regeneration, and wound healing.
