SESSION TITLE: Pulmonary Vascular Disease: PAH
SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PURPOSE: We previously observed that capping protein gelsolin-like (CapG) was preferentially expressed in human pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells (PAMSCs) under hypoxia compared with normoxia, and reduced CapG expression was accompanied by significantly impaired migration ability in vitro under hypoxia. This result indicates that CapG could play an important role in the pathogenesis of pulmonary vascular remodeling under hypoxia.
