Expression of soluble and insoluble fibronectin in rat aorta: effects of angiotensin II and endothelin-1.

Abstract

This study has investigated the influence of the vasoconstrictor peptides angiotensin II (Ang II) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) on fibronectin expression by vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). In confluent, quiescent cultures of VSMC, Ang II and ET-1 elevated fibronectin mRNA levels in a time- and dose-dependent fashion. ET-1 and Ang II also induced a time… (More)
