Upregulation of AT1 receptor gene on activation of protein kinase Cbeta/nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide diphosphate oxidase/ERK1/2/c-fos signaling cascade mediates long-term pressor effect of angiotensin II in rostral ventrolateral medulla.


OBJECTIVE Angiotensin II induces the phosphorylation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) 1/2 via the activation of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide diphosphate (NADPH) oxidase on stimulation of the angiotensin subtype 1 receptor (AT1R) in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM), where sympathetic… (More)
