Eur J Pharmacol. 2015. Rutaecarpine prevented dysfunction of endothelial gap junction induced by Ox-LDL via activation of TRPV1. Gap junctions, which is formed by connexins, has been proved to play an important role in the atherogenesis development. Rutaecarpine was reported to inhibited monocyte migration, which indicates its potential for anti-atherosclerosis activity. . Results suggest that rutaecarpine has the potential for use as an anti-atherosclerosis agent with a novel mechanism.
