Natriuretic peptide receptor-C activation regulates vascular smooth muscle cell hypertrophy : molecular mechanisms
Results indicate that C-ANP4-23, via the activation of NPR-C, attenuates VSMC hypertrophy through its ability to decrease the overexpression of the AT1 receptor and Gqα/PLCβ1 proteins, the enhanced oxidative stress, the increased activation of growth factors and the enhanced phosphorylation of the MAPK/AKT signalling pathway.

Blood Pressure: Return of the Sympathetics?
It is likely that by far the most benefit to the most patients will occur via better screening, more aggressive therapy, and the development of strategies that improve patient adherence to medication regimens and lifestyle changes.
Oligonucleotide Microarrays Identified Potential Regulatory Genes Related to Early Outward Arterial Remodeling Induced by Tissue Plasminogen Activator
TPA promotes outward arterial remodeling after injury, at least in part, by regulating expression of genes in the vessel wall related to function of the nervous system and vascular tone.
Beta-adrenoceptor Activation by Norepinephrine Enhances Lipopolysaccharide-induced Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 Expression Through the ERK/JNK-c-Fos Pathway in Human THP-1 Cells
The results suggest that NE enhances LPS-induced MMP-9 expression through β-adrenergic receptor and downstream ERK/JNK-c-Fos pathway, and this study may help to understand the combined effect and mechanism of NE/LPS on MMP -9 expression.
The tunica adventitia is an active dynamic layer which has metabolic, regulatory and defence roles that are critical in arterial homeostasis and  atherosclerosis.
Current Understanding of Vascular Wall Pathophysiology in Erectile Dysfunction and Priapism
The fundamental aspects that surround the understanding of the vascular wall such as the core biology, neurotransmission activity, biochemistry, essential pathways, and physiology that partake during synthesis and homeostasis of theascular wall are discussed, as well as the autophagy, which contributes to regulatory steps within the vascular Wall.

Sympathetic regulation of vascular function in health and disease
In humans large artery stiffness has been associated with increased sympathetic discharge, both in healthy subjects and in renal transplant recipients, and peripheral sympathetic discharge is also able to modulate wave reflection, which can interfere with autonomic regulation by impairing carotid baroreflex sensitivity.

Pre- and postjunctional neuromodulation of vascular transmission, and cotransmission involving noradrenaline, ATP and neuropeptide Y in sympathetic nerves, acetylcholine and vasoactive intestinal polypeptides in parasympathetic nerves, and substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide and ATP in 'sensory-motor' nerves are discussed.
Calcitonin gene-related peptide acts as a novel vasodilator neurotransmitter in mesenteric resistance vessels of the rat
Pharmacological evidence for the existence of nonadrenergic, non-cholinergic (NANC) vasodilator nerves in the mesenteric resistance vessel of the rat is presented and CGRP is shown to play a role in control of the total peripheral resistance of systemic circulation through a local reflex mechanism.

Role of Nitric Oxide in Central Sympathetic Outflow
The central role of NO in the regulation of sympathetic outflow and subsequent cardiovascular control is examined and studies demonstrating specific medullary and hypothalamic sites involved in sympathetic out flow are summarized.
Do cholinergic nerves innervating rat mesenteric arteries regulate vascular tone?
Results suggest that rat mesenteric arteries have cholinergic innervation, which is different from adrenergic and capsaicin-sensitive nerves and not associated with vascular tone regulation.
Assessment of Sympathetic Cardiovascular Drive in Human Hypertension: Achievements and Perspectives
The mechanisms responsible for the adrenergic overdrive, the relationships between the sympathetic activation and the metabolic disarray of frequent detection in the hypertensive state, and the participation of neuroadrenergic factors at the development of the hypertension-related target organ damage are examined.
Angiotensin-generated reactive oxygen species in brain and pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases.
The status of understanding on the roles of ROS and redox-sensitive signaling in brain Ang II-dependent cardiovascular diseases is summarized, using hypertension and heart failure as illustrative examples.
Sympathetic activation markedly reduces endothelium-dependent, flow-mediated vasodilation.
Interactions Between Autonomic Nervous System Activity and Endothelial Function: A Model for the Development of Cardiovascular Disease
Although interactions between cardiovascular ANS regulation and endothelial function are likely involved in CVD development, further research is needed to determine whether ANS and endothelium interactions are a plausible pathway linking psychosocial factors with increased CVD risk.
