Interleukin (IL)-6 acts via a receptor complex consisting of the cognate IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) or the soluble IL-6 receptor (sIL-6R) and glycoprotein 130 (gp130). Here, we investigated the role of these IL-6R components in hypertension and vascular hypertrophy in mice. Angiotensin (Ang) II (1.1 mg/kg/day) caused hypertension and cardiac/aortic hypertrophy in wild-type, but not IL-6(-/-), mice throughout 7 days. A recombinant dimeric soluble gp130 (sgp130Fc; 50 to 100 microg, i.p.) blocked Ang… CONTINUE READING
