p38 Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Contributes to the Diminished Aortic Contraction by Endothelin-1 in DOCA-Salt Hypertensive Rats
It is suggested thatET-1 and 5-HT induce contraction by activating the MAPK pathway in rat aortic smooth muscle and that the diminished responsiveness to ET-1 in the DOCA-salt hypertensive rat may be, in part, mediated by the decrease of caldesmon phosphorylation after the decreased activation of p38 MAPK.

Endothelin-1 induces contraction via a Syk-mediated p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in rat aortic smooth muscle.
Results suggest that spleen tyrosine kinase may play an important role in the regulation of aortic smooth muscle contraction induced by ET-1, which may be mediated by the p38 MAPK/HSP27 signaling pathway. Expand
p38 MAPK Participates in Muscle-Specific RING Finger 1-Mediated Atrophy in Cast-Immobilized Rat Gastrocnemius Muscle.
It is suggested that the expression of MuRF1 in cast-immobilized atrophy is regulated by p38 MAPK in rat gastrocnemius muscles. Expand
A comparative study of the effects of trunk exercise program in aquatic and land-based therapy on gait in hemiplegic stroke patients
The results suggest that the aquatic and land-based trunk exercise program may help improve gait performance ability after stroke. Expand
Differences in the body pressure-related sensory changes between the floor and mattress in a static supine position for physiotherapy research: a randomized controlled pilot trial
The results suggest that properties that change in a time-dependent manner and postural changes need to be carefully considered when applying physical therapy. Expand
Cordycepin attenuates neointimal formation by inhibiting reactive oxygen species-mediated responses in vascular smooth muscle cells in rats.
It is demonstrated that cordycepin may exert inhibitory effects on PDGF-BB-induced migration and proliferation via interfering with adenosine receptor-mediated NOS pathways, thus resulting in the attenuation of neointima formation. Expand
Direct block by bisindolylmaleimide of the voltage-dependent K+ currents of rat mesenteric arterial smooth muscle.
The results suggest that bisindolylmaleimide (I) directly inhibits the Kv currents of rat mesenteric arterial smooth muscle cells independently of PKC inhibition, in a state-, voltage-, time- and use-dependent manner. Expand
c-Jun N-terminal kinase contributes to norepinephrine-induced contraction through phosphorylation of caldesmon in rat aortic smooth muscle.
Results show that JNK contributes to NE-mediated contraction through phosphorylation of caldesmon in rat aortic smooth muscle, and that this effect is regulated by the PKC pathway, especially cPKC. Expand
Mitogen-activated protein kinase contributes to elevated basal tone in aortic smooth muscle from hypertensive rats.
The role of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) in increased basal tone -spontaneous resistance in vascular muscle strips- was clarified in aortic smooth muscle from deoxycorticosterone acetateExpand
Tetrahydrobiopterin Inhibits PDGF-stimulated Migration and Proliferation in Rat Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells via the Nitric Oxide Synthase-independent Pathway.
The present results suggest that BH4 and BH2 may inhibit PDGF-stimulated RASMC migration and proliferation via the NOS-independent pathway and could be useful for the development of a candidate molecule with an NO-independent anti-atherosclerotic function. Expand
