We recently demonstrated that thrombin induces the expression of vascular adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) in endothelial cells by an NF-kappaB- and GATA-dependent mechanism. In the present study, we describe the signaling pathways that mediate this response. Thrombin stimulation of the VCAM-1 gene and promoter in human umbilical vein endothelial cells was inhibited by preincubation with the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase inhibitor, LY294002, the protein kinase C (PKC)-delta inhibitor, rottlerin, a… CONTINUE READING
