Axl mediates vascular remodeling induced by deoxycorticosterone acetate-salt hypertension.


Axl, a receptor tyrosine kinase, was recently identified as a novel candidate gene in a genetic model of salt-sensitive hypertension (Sabra rat). Our group first reported that Axl plays a significant role in vascular remodeling in response to injury. Here we investigated the role of Axl in the pathogenesis of hypertension in a deoxycorticosterone acetate… (More)
