Angiotensin II inhibits Na+/K+ATPase activity in pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells via glutathionylation and with the involvement of a 15.6 kDa inhibitor protein.


PMID 26118122

Abstract

The role of angiotensin II in regulating Na+/K(+)-ATPase activity has been investigated in bovine pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (BPASMCs). Our study reveals that angiotensin II inhibits the Na+/K+ATPase activity via glutathionylation of the pump with the involvement of an increase in NADPH oxidase-derived O2*-. Additionally, angiotensin II treatment to the cells increases the inhibitory potency of the 15.6 kDa inhibitor towards the Na+/K+ATPase activity.
