The molecular basis of homocysteine-induced cell proliferation in human vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) remains unclear. We investigated the mechanism by which homocysteine affects the cyclin D1 expression in human umbilical artery smooth muscle cells (HUASMCs). Homocysteine treatment for 24 and 48 h induced proliferation of cells...
