Steroid hormones upregulate rat angiotensin II type 1A receptor gene: role of glucocorticoid responsive elements in rat angiotensin II type 1A promoter.

Abstract

The transcription of the rat angiotensin II type 1A receptor gene is stimulated by glucocorticoids. To clarify the molecular mechanism for glucocorticoid action in rat vascular smooth muscle cells, we investigated the effects of dexamethasone on the promoter activity of the angiotensin II type 1A receptor by using promoter/luciferase reporter gene… (More)
