Reactive Oxygen Species Generation Is Involved in Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Transactivation through the Transient Oxidization of Src Homology 2-Containing Tyrosine Phosphatase in Endothelin-1
Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is implicated in fibroblast proliferation, which results in cardiac fibrosis. Both reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)Expand

Heme oxygenase-1 contributes to the cytoprotection of alpha-lipoic acid via activation of p44/42 mitogen-activated protein kinase in vascular smooth muscle cells.
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a natural antioxidant that scavenges reactive oxygen species (ROS) and regenerates or recycles endogenous antioxidants. ALA has recently been reported to protect againstExpand

Role of mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in reactive oxygen species-mediated endothelin-1-induced beta-myosin heavy chain gene expression and cardiomyocyte hypertrophy.
Endothelin-1 (ET-1) has been found to increase cardiac beta-myosin heavy chain (beta-MyHC) gene expression and induce hypertrophy in cardiomyocytes. ET-1 has been demonstrated to increaseExpand

Crucial role of extracellular signal-regulated kinase pathway in reactive oxygen species-mediated endothelin-1 gene expression induced by endothelin-1 in rat cardiac fibroblasts.
Endothelin-1 (ET-1) has been implicated in fibroblast proliferation. However, the mechanism involving ET-1 is not clear. The present study was performed to examine the role of endogenous ET-1 inExpand

Involvement of reactive oxygen species in angiotensin II-induced endothelin-1 gene expression in rat cardiac fibroblasts.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of angiotensin II (Ang II) on fibroblast proliferation and endothelin-1 (ET-1) gene induction, focusing especially on reactive oxygenExpand

Nitric Oxide Inhibits Endothelin-1-Induced Cardiomyocyte Hypertrophy through cGMP-mediated Suppression of Extracellular-Signal Regulated Kinase Phosphorylation
Cardiac hypertrophy is a compensatory mechanism in response to a variety of cardiovascular diseases. Recently, reactive oxygen species and nitric oxide (NO) have been demonstrated to be involved inExpand

The Inhibitory Effect of Trilinolein on Norepinephrine-Induced β-Myosin Heavy Chain Promoter Activity, Reactive Oxygen Species Generation, and Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase Phosphorylation in
The myocardial protective effects of trilinolein, isolated from the traditional Chinese herb Sanchi (Panax notoginseng), are thought to be related to its antioxidant activity. However, theExpand

MECHANICAL STRETCH INDUCES ENDOTHELIAL NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE GENE EXPRESSION IN NEONATAL RAT CARDIOMYOCYTES
1 Mechanical stretch leads to cardiac hypertrophy and may ultimately cause heart failure. However, the effect of mechanical stretch on gene induction in cardiomyocytes remains to be determined. 2 InExpand
