MicroRNA-155 inhibits angiotensin II-induced vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation

Background: MicroRNA-155 (miR-155) is a multifunctional signal microRNA that participates in a variety of cardiovascular diseases and is involved in physiological and pathological processes in different cell types.

Angiotensin II induces extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer expression via an AT1R dependent pathway in aortic atherosclerotic plaque in apolipoprotein E knockout mice

The pathogenesis of acute coronary syndrome is rupture of vulnerable plaque. Extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) is reported to have a important role in the destabilization of atheroma. Objectives: this investigation examined the effect of angiotensin II (Ang II) on EMMPRIN expression in atherosclerotic plaques in ApoE knockout mice. Methods: ApoE knockout...
