Disseminated Arterial Calcification and Enhanced Myogenic Response Are Associated With Abcc6 Deficiency in a Mouse Model of Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum

Abstract : Pseudoxanthoma elasticum is an inherited metabolic disorder resulting from ABCC6 gene mutations. It is characterized by progressive calcification and fragmentation of elastic fibers in the skin, retina, and the arterial wall. Despite calcium accumulation in the arteries of patients with pseudoxanthoma elasticum, functional consequences remain unknown. In the present study, we investigated arterial structure and function in Abcc6(-/-) mice, a model of the human disease.
