The receptor subtypes that mediate the vasoconstrictor and hypertrophic responses of AII were evaluated in cultured aortic smooth muscle cells from rat. The AII receptors were characterized by means of the subtype-specific receptor antagonists DuP 753 (AII-1) and PD123177 (AII-2) using changes of [Ca2+]i (fura-2) as an indirect measurement of vasoconstriction and of [3H]leucine or [3H]thymidine incorporation as indices for hypertrophy and hyperplasia, respectively. AII-induced [Ca2+]i… 
Effects of BAY 10-6734 (Embusartan), a new angiotensin II type I receptor antagonist, on vascular smooth muscle cell growth.
BAY 10-6734 appears as a potent and specific new inhibitor of AII-induced growth-related events in VSMCs.
Characterization of the angiotensin II AT1 receptor subtype involved in DNA synthesis in cultured vascular smooth muscle cells
The results confirm that AII can stimulate DNA synthesis in VSMC through an AT1 receptor and are compatible with the AT1A receptor subtype recently described on cultured mesangial cells.
Cellular Physiology of Angiotensin II Receptors in Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells
Recent advances in understanding of Ang II-mediated SMC growth with respect to the role of individual angiotensin receptor subtypes and their associated signaling systems are summarized.
Angiotensin II-induced responses in vascular smooth muscle cells: inhibition by non-peptide receptor antagonists.
LR-B/081 and losartan blocked the response to angiotensin III but failed to inhibit the prostaglandin release stimulated by vasopressin or the mitogenic effect of serum, and were devoid of intrinsic properties in the experimental conditions employed.
Receptor-mediated effects of angiotensin II on growth of vascular smooth muscle cells from spontaneously hypertensive rats.
Data show that the angiotensin II receptors present in vascular smooth muscle cells in culture from both rat strains are of the AT1 receptor subtype, which appears to mediate vascular smoother muscle cell hypertrophy and proliferation as well as vasoconstriction.
HR 720, a novel angiotensin receptor antagonist inhibits the angiotensin II-induced trophic effects, fibronectin release and fibronectin-EIIIA+ expression in rat aortic vascular smooth muscle cells in vitro.
All induced parallel and concentration-dependent increases in cell volume, protein synthesis, FN release and FN-EIIIA+ mRNA expression in vascular smooth muscle cells.
Both AT₁ and AT₂ receptors mediate proliferation and migration of porcine vascular smooth muscle cells.
The observed role of the AT(2) receptor in ANG II-induced migration was confirmed with smooth muscle cells depleted of the At(1) receptor with short hairpin RNA treatment, and focal adhesion kinase activation in response to ANG II was prevented only by PD-123319, indicating that this activation is downstream of theAT( 2) receptor.
Angiotensin II receptor expression and inhibition in the chronically hypoxic rat lung
The data suggest that AII, via the AT1 receptor, has a role in the early pathogenesis of hypoxia‐induced pulmonary hypertension in the rat, and is associated with cardiac hypertrophy and pulmonary remodelling.
Natriuretic peptide receptor-C activation regulates vascular smooth muscle cell hypertrophy : molecular mechanisms
Results indicate that C-ANP4-23, via the activation of NPR-C, attenuates VSMC hypertrophy through its ability to decrease the overexpression of the AT1 receptor and Gqα/PLCβ1 proteins, the enhanced oxidative stress, the increased activation of growth factors and the enhanced phosphorylation of the MAPK/AKT signalling pathway.
Angiotensin II regulates vascular smooth muscle cell pH, contraction, and growth via tyrosine kinase-dependent signaling pathways.
Novel evidence is provided for a role of tyrosine kinases in Ang II-mediated pHi responses in vascular smooth muscle cells and indicate that tyrosin kinases participate in the regulation of signal transduction associated with AT1 receptor subtype-mediated contraction and growth.
