英文摘要

Angiotensin-(1-7) [Ang-(1-7)] is a new bioactive heptapeptide in the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) with potent protective effects in cardiovascular diseases, opposing many actions of angiotensin II (Ang II) mediated by Ang II type 1 (AT1) receptor. It is produced mainly by the activity of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) and acts through the Mas receptor. However, the role of Ang-(1-7) in vascular calcification (VC) is still unclear. In this study, we investigated the protective effects of Ang-(1-7) on VC in an in vivo rat VC model induced by vitamin D-3 plus nicotine. The levels of ACE2 and the Mas receptor, as well as ACE, AT1 receptor, Ang II type 2 receptor and angiotensinogen, were significantly increased in calcified aortas, and Ang-(1-7) reversed the increased levels. Ang-(1-7) restored the reduced expression of lineage markers, including smooth muscle (SM) alpha-actin, SM22 alpha, calponin and smoothelin, in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and retarded the osteogenic transition of VSMCs by decreasing the expression of bone-associated proteins. It reduced alkaline phosphatase activity and calcium deposition in VC and alleviated the hemodynamic disorders of rats with VC. We provide the first in vivo evidence that Ang-(1-7) can inhibit the development of VC by inhibiting the osteogenic transition of VSMCs, at least in part by decreasing levels of the ACE/Ang II/AT1 axis. The increased expression of ACE2 and the Mas receptor in calcified aortas suggests the involvement of the ACE2/Ang-(1-7)/Mas axis during VC. Ang-(1-7) might be an efficient endogenous vasoprotective factor for VC. (c) 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
