Recent studies suggest that hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) increases collagen type I accumulation in rat vascular adventitia after balloon injury and that Angiotensin II (Ang II) induces collagen synthesis in vascular adventitial fibroblasts. Reports also indicate that Ang II type1 receptor (AT(1)R) activation, mediated by homocysteine (Hcy) may contribute to collagen type 1 expression in mouse aortic endothelial cells. However, little is known about the possible mechanisms behind the relationship between Hcy and AT(1)R in adventitial remodeling. Thus, we investigated whether HHcy induces collagen accumulation via activation of AT(1)R in the adventitia. Male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into a control group and a 1% L-methionine-induced HHcy group. Balloon injury was performed after 12 experimental weeks and animals were sacrificed at 7, 14, and 28 days after injury. Collagen deposition and AT(1)R expression was measured with Western blot. Serum Hcy, adventitial collagen, and AT(1)R levels were higher in the HHcy group compared with the control group. Hcy time-dependently induced collagen type 1 and AT(1)R expression, with the highest induction observed at 48 h. Also, we observed that the AT(1)R blocker, valsartan, attenuated collagen type 1 and AT(1)R expression. HHcy exacerbates adventitial remodeling after balloon injury, and the underling mechanisms may be related to AT(1)R activity.
