Angiotensin (Ang) II-stimulated phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator transcription (STAT) 3 in rat hepatocytes and the effects of ethanol on this activation were investigated. Angiotensin II (100 nM) stimulated Tyr705 and Ser727 phosphorylation of STAT3 and formation of sis-inducing factor complexes. In the presence of U-0126 (10microM), a p42/44 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) kinase inhibitor, Ang II further increased Tyr705 phosphorylation of STAT3 but completely… CONTINUE READING
