Abstract

Reduction/oxidation (redox) reactions play a central role in the regulation of vascular cell functions. Recent studies in this laboratory have identified and osteopontin genes as critical molecular targets during oxidant-induced atherogenesis. This review focuses on the deregulation of gene transcription by redox-activated -acting factors after benzo(a)pyrene challenge and the modulation of extracellular matrix signaling in vascular smooth muscle cells by allylamine-induced oxidative injury. The induction of atherogenic vascular smooth muscle cell phenotypes by chemical injury exhibits remarkable parallels with those seen in other forms of atherogenesis.
