    In hypertension, increased peripheral resistance maintains elevated levels of arterial blood pressure. The increase in peripheral ressitance results, in part, from abnormal constrictor and dilator responses and vascular remodeling. In this review, we consider four cellular signaling pathways as...

    Mastoparan-7 (mas-7) is a basic tetradecapeptide isolated from wasp venom, which activates guanine nucleotide-binding regulatory proteins (G-proteins) and stimulates apoptosis. In smooth muscle cells, mas-7 leads to an increase in the perfusion pressure. The main aim of this study was to...

    Objectives: Extracellular nucleotide release at the site of arterial injury mediates the proliferation and migration of vascular smooth muscle cells. Our aim was to investigate the role of the P2Y2 nucleotide receptor (P2Y2R) in neointimal hyperplasia. Approach and Results: Vascular injury was...

    Endothelin is a potent vasoconstrictor often up-regulated in hypertension. Endothelin vasoconstriction is mediated via the G-protein coupled endothelin A (ETA) receptor present on vascular smooth muscle. Endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs) have been shown to antagonize ET-induced...

    Endothelin-1 (ET-1), a vasoactive peptide, is believed to contribute to the pathogenesis of vascular abnormalities such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, hypertrophy and restenosis. ET-1 elicits its biological effects through the activation of two receptor subtypes, ET-A and ET-B that belong to...

    Apelin is the endogenous ligand of the G-protein-coupled receptor, apelin-angiotensin receptor-like 1 (APJ). Vascular smooth muscle cells express both apelin and APJ, which are important regulatory factors in the cardiovascular system. Apelin-13 significantly stimulated vascular smooth muscle...

    Despite the central physiological function of the myogenic response, the underlying signalling pathways and the identity of mechanosensors in vascular smooth muscle (VSM) are still elusive. In contrast to present thinking, we show that membrane stretch does not primarily gate mechanosensitive...

    Aim:To identify a key protein that binds monomeric G protein RhoA and activates the RhoA/Rho kinase/MYPT1 axis in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) upon angiotensin II (Ang II) stimulation.Methods:Primary cultured VSMCs from Sprague-Dawley rats were transfected with siRNAs against...

    Aims: Rho guanine nucleotide exchange factors (Rho GEFs) are responsible for Rho protein activation by catalyzing the exchange of GDP for GTP. Although overactivation of Rho proteins is a common component of the pathogenesis of vascular disorders, the molecular mechanisms and the Rho GEFs...
