ANG II potentiates mitogenic effect of norepinephrine in vascular muscle cells: role of FGF-2.


We examined the possible cooperation between norepinephrine (NE) and ANG II on proliferation of cultured vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and the involved cellular mechanisms. Nanomolar NE concentrations stimulated VSMC proliferation through a prazosin-sensitive effect. The pretreatment of cells with 100 nM ANG II for 24 h significantly potentiated the… (More)
