The dual-specificity mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) phosphatase-1 (MKP-1) inactivates MAP kinases by dephosphorylation. Here we show that the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-17A(More)
Both oxidative stress and inflammation contribute to chronic hypertension-induced myocardial fibrosis and adverse cardiac remodeling. Here we investigated whether angiotensin (Ang)-II-induced(More)
Both the sympathetic nervous system and the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-18 (IL-18) play key roles in the pathophysiology of the hypertrophied failing heart. IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP),(More)
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) exerts an inhibitory effect on juxtaglomerular (JG) renin synthesis and release by activating guanylyl cyclase/ natriuretic peptide receptor-A (GC-A/NPRA). Renin has(More)
