Aortic vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) were used to study the effect of age on responses to high glucose concentrations or the cytokine, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha). Activator protein-1 (AP-1) binding to DNA increased more in VSMC from old versus young rats (P < 0.02) and was related to increased expression of its components, c-Fos, Fra-1,(More)
Nitric oxide modulates vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) cytoskeletal kinetics and phenotype, in part, by stimulating cGMP-dependent protein kinase I (PKGI). To identify molecular targets of PKGI, an interaction trap screen in yeast was performed using a cDNA encoding the catalytic region of PKGI and a human lung cDNA library. We identified a cDNA that(More)
