Angiotensin II induces EMMPRIN expression in THP-1 macrophages via the NF-kappaB pathway.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent studies on atherosclerosis showed that an inducer of MMPs, EMMPRIN, is highly expressed in human atheromas. This suggested the important role of EMMPRIN in the stability of atherosclerotic plaques. Angiotensin II, one of the main functional peptides in the renin-angiotensin system, is involved in the advancement of atherosclerosis. We… (More)
