Transcription factor Foxo-1 can be inactivated via Akt-mediated phosphorylation. Since shear stress activates Akt, we determined whether Foxo-1 and the Foxo-1-dependent, angiogenesis-related Ang-2/Tie2-system are influenced by shear stress in endothelial cells. Expression of Foxo-1 and its target genes p27Kip1 and Ang-2 was decreased under shear stress (6dyn/cm(2), 24h), nuclear exclusion of Foxo-1 by phosphorylation increased. eNOS and Tie2 were upregulated. No effects on Ang-1 expression were… CONTINUE READING
