Here we showed that Ang II induced NF-B activation and enhanced NF-B promoter activity in HASMCs, which could regulate MMP-9 expression and cell migration. with siRNA of scrambled or MMP-9, and then treated with Ang II (10?M) for 24?h. The cell migration was determined by migration assay. Data are expressed as meanS.E.M. of three independent experiments. (A) Cells were incubated with CORM-2 for the indicated times, and then the cell viability was determined. (B) Cells were pretreated with CORM-2 for 2?h in the presence or absence of hemoglobin (Hb), and then treated with Ang II for 24?h. The concentration of MMP-9 was determined. (C) Cells were pretreated with CORM-2 for 2?h, and then treated with Ang II for 24?h. The conditioned media were subjected to determine MMP-9 expression by gelatin zymography. (D) Cells were pretreated with CORM-2 for 2?h in the presence or absence of Hb, and then treated with Ang II for 24?h. The cell migration was determined by migration assay. (E) Cells were pretreated with CORM-2 for 2?h in the presence or absence of Hb, and then treated with Ang II for 6?h. The mRNA levels and promoter activity of MMP-9 were determined by real-time PCR and promoter assay, respectively. Data are expressed as meanS.E.M. of three independent experiments. #(A) Cells were transfected with siRNA of scrambled, Nox2, Pranoprofen or Nox4, and then treated with Ang II for 24?h. The conditioned media were subjected to determine MMP-9 expression by gelatin zymography. (B) Cells Pranoprofen were transfected with siRNA of scrambled, p47phox, Nox2, or Nox4, and then treated with Ang II for 24?h. The concentration of MMP-9 was determined. (C) Cells were transfected with siRNA of scrambled, p47phox, Nox2, or Nox4, and then treated with Ang II for 24?h. The cell migration was determined by migration assay. (D) Cells were pretreated with NAC, DPI, or APO for 1?h, and then treated with Ang II for 6?h. The mRNA levels and promoter activity of MMP-9 were determined by real-time PCR and promoter assay, respectively. Data are expressed as meanS.E.M. of three independent experiments. (A) Cells were treated with 10?M Ang II for the indicated times, and then the generation of ROS was determined. (B) Cells were transfected with siRNA of scrambled, p47phox, Nox2, or Nox4, and then treated with Ang II for 60?min. The generation of ROS was determined. (C) Cells were treated with 10?M Ang II for the indicated times, and then the activity of NADPH oxidase was determined. (D) Cells were treated with 10?M Ang II for the indicated times or pretreated with CORM-2 for 2?h, and then treated with Ang II for 30?min. The cytosolic and membrane fractions were prepared and subjected RGS14 to Western blot using an anti-p47phox antibody. GAPDH and GS were used as a marker protein for cytosolic and membrane fractions, respectively. (E) Cells were pretreated with Pranoprofen CORM-2 for 2?h, and then treated with Ang II for 60?min (for ROS generation) or 30?min (for NADPH oxidase activity). The ROS generation and NADPH oxidase activity were determined. Data are expressed as meanS.E.M. of three independent experiments. Cells were transfected with siRNA of scrambled or p65, and then treated with Ang II for 24?h. The concentration of MMP-9 was determined (A). The cell migration was determined by migration assay (B). (C) Cells were pretreated with helenalin (HLN) or Bay11-7082 (Bay) for 1?h, and then treated with Ang II for 6?h. The mRNA levels and promoter activity of MMP-9 were determined by real-time PCR and promoter assay, respectively. (D) Cells were treated with 10?M Ang II for the indicated times, and then the promoter activity of NF-B was measured by promoter assay. (E) Cells were pretreated with CORM-2, NAC, APO, DPI, and HLN, and then treated with Ang II for 60?min. The promoter activity of NF-B was measured by promoter assay. (F) Cells were pretreated with CORM-2, NAC, or HLN, and then treated with Ang.
