L-type Ca 2+ channel (VGCC) mediated Ca 2+ influx in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) contributes to the functional properties of large arteries in arterial stiffening and central blood pressure regulation. How this influx relates to steady-state contractions elicited by α1adrenoreceptor stimulation and how it is modulated by small variations in resting membrane potential (V m ) of VSMC is not clear yet. Here, we show that α1-adrenoreceptor stimulation of aortic segments of C57Bl6 mice with

By studying the relationship between Ca 2+ mobilisation and isometric tension, it was found that the phasic contraction was due to intracellular Ca 2+ release and the tonic contraction determined by Ca 2+ influx. The latter component involves both Ca 2+ influx via VGCC and via non-selective cation channels (NSCC). Influx via VGCC occurs only within the window voltage range of the channel. Modulation of this window Ca 2+ influx by small variations of the VSMC V m causes substantial effects on the contractile performance of aortic segments. The relative contribution of VGCC and NSCC to the contraction by α1-adrenoceptor stimulation could be manipulated by increasing intracellular Ca 2+ release from noncontractile sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca 2+ stores. Results of this study point to a complex interactions between α1-adrenoceptor-mediated VSMC contractile performance and Ca 2+ release form contractile or non-contractile Ca 2+ stores with concomitant Ca 2+ influx. Given the importance of VGCC and their blockers in arterial stiffening and hypertension, they further point toward an additional role of NSCC (and NSCC blockers) herein. Fig 3.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Everolimus is an allosteric inhibitor of the mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) widely known for its potent autophagy stimulating properties. Because everolimus shows poor solubility and stability in aqueous solutions, long-term in vivo administration in preclinical models is challenging. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of short-term and long-term everolimus administration on mTORC1 inhibition and autophagy induction in mice.
more » ... MENTAL APPROACH We developed a vehicle in which everolimus was solubilized and stable at 37°C for at least 1 month. Using osmotic minipumps, GFP microtubule-associated protein light chain 3 transgenic mice were treated continuously either with vehicle or everolimus (1.5 mg·kg À1 per day) for 3 or 28 days. Alternatively, a regimen consisting of intermittent everolimus administration (every other day) for 56 days by oral gavage was used. Autophagy markers and mTORC1 activation status were investigated in the liver. KEY RESULTS As expected, everolimus inhibited mTORC1 and stimulated autophagy in the liver after 3 days of treatment. However, continuous administration for 28 days resulted in hyperactivation of the Akt1-mTORC1 pathway accompanied by a remarkable decrease in autophagy markers. Everolimus given intermittently for 56 days partially rescued mTORC1 sensitivity to the drug but without inducing autophagy. The failure to induce autophagy following long-term everolimus administration was due to uncoupling of the mTORC1 substrate unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase 1. CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS Our data encourage the use of intermittent everolimus regimens to prevent tolerance and to extend its activity.
