Evidence is presented that glucocorticoids (GC) and mineralocorticoids (MC) control contractility of vascular smooth muscle (VSM). This control is effected through the in situ mechanism for the action of these steroids in the arterial and arteriolar wall. This action is mediated through GC and MC receptors in the VSM cell. Acting through these receptors, MC and GC increase transport capacities of different transmembrane transport systems for Na+ and/or Ca2+ through induction of synthesis of… CONTINUE READING
