We studied the respective roles of cyclooxygenases (COX) isoforms as well as the p38 and p42/44 MAP kinase cascades in angiotensin II (AngII)-, endothelin-1 (ET-1)- and epidermal growth factor (EGF)-induced prostacyclin (PGI(2)) secretion in neonatal rat ventricular cardiomyocytes. Exposure of these cells for 1 h to 100 nM AngII, ET-1 or EGF resulted in an(More)
