Regulation of human vascular protease-activated receptor-3 through mRNA stabilization and the transcription factor nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT).


Thrombin promotes vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation and inflammation via protease-activated receptor (PAR)-1. A further thrombin receptor, PAR-3, acts as a PAR-1 cofactor in some cell-types. Unlike PAR-1, PAR-3 is dynamically regulated at the mRNA level in thrombin-stimulated SMC. This study investigated the mechanisms controlling PAR-3… (More)
