Phosphoinositide hydrolysis and calcium mobilization induced by vasopressin and angiotensin II in cultured vascular smooth muscle cells.


The cellular action of vasoconstrictive hormones, angiotensin II (AII) and Arg8-vasopressin (AVP), on vascular smooth muscle (VSM) in cultured VSM cells from rat mesenteric artery was studied. Both AII and AVP specifically induce a transient increases in cytosolic free calcium independent of extracellular calcium or calcium channels activated by high… (More)
