To study the mechanisms by which adrenomedullin (AM) induces endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation, we examined whether AM-induced endothelium-dependent vasodilation was mediated by the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt-dependent pathway in rat aorta, because it was recently reported that PI3K/Akt was implicated in the activation of endothelial NO synthase. AM-induced vasorelaxation in thoracic aorta with intact endothelium was inhibited by pretreatment with PI3K inhibitors to the samedoi:10.1161/hh1301.092498 pmid:11440979 fatcat:xxcouio3bvdepf7uksqmiai7dq
