Abstract
Spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) was used to study left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and its dynamic change after the interventions with Telmisartan and Amlodipine. The results showed that the expression of TRPC1, CaN and NFATC3 increased gradually with the pathogenesis and progression of LVH. Telmisartan reduced blood pressure and LVH, and down-regulated the expression of TRPC1, CaN and NFATC3 in left ventricle of SHR. Amlodipine reduced the blood pressure in SHR but had no impact on the hypertrophy and expression of above factors. Our data suggest that the pathogenesis and progression of LVH in SHR are related to upregulation of TRPC1, CaN and NFATC3 signaling pathway.
