the vasoprotective and vasopressor effects of nesfatin-1 at different doses in mouse models of peripheral arterial remodeling. Additionally, we sought to clarify the underlying mechanisms in cultured human vascular endothelial cells (VECs) and vascular

intracellular signaling pathways involved in cardiac and arterial function and remodeling ( 67 , 68 ). CNS actions appear to play an important role as well. Several groups have shown that in rats chronic s.c. or i.v. infusion of ouabain causes a gradual, dose

improvements in arterial stiffness ( 6 ). Vascular remodeling is a possible consequence of hypertension due to glucocorticoid excess. Hypertrophic changes in the morphology of small-resistance arteries (increased media to lumen ratio, media thickness and wall

arterial structure and function of patients with acromegaly is impaired, which might contribute to the development of CVD ( 6 ). We therefore hypothesized that treated acromegaly patients are characterized by prolonged inflammatory changes, which might

expression is associated with apoptosis in the infarction border zone, cardiac dilatation and pathological remodeling ( 32 ). Given that p53 can regulate the JNK pathway through a positive feedback loop, THs might reduce JNK levels through a p53-dependent

, blinded observer evaluated all cardiac MRI data. BP was measured twice after 10 min resting, and the mean values were used for calculating mean arterial pressure (MAP). MAP was calculated by the following formula: MAP=DBP+1/3×(SBP−DBP), where DBP is
