Regulation of endothelin receptor expression in vascular smooth-muscle cells.


Endothelin-1 (ET-1) has been implicated in atherosclerosis, hypertension, and restenosis, all of which involve abnormal vascular smooth muscle cell function and/or proliferation. We have previously established that human umbilical vein smooth-muscle cells (HUVSMCs) can secrete ET, (1) whereas A10 cells do not. Therefore, we investigated the effect of… (More)
