Sodium-glucose co-transporter 1 and 2 expression in the mammary artery of patients with bypass surgery: role of the pro-inflammatory response and contribution to oxidative stress Article uri icon


  • Selective sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors have shown cardiovascular protection independently of glycemic control. Angiotensin II (Ang II) and H2O2 induced the expression of SGLT1 and 2 in cultured endothelial cells and isolated arteries to promote oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction. However, the expression level and role of SGLT1 and 2 in human arteries remain poorly studied.
