The interaction of ANG II with platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB-induced DNA synthesis was studied in cultured rat aortic smooth muscle cells. PDGF-BB-induced DNA synthesis was delayed (∼6–8 h) by ANG II as shown by a time-course experiment. Losartan, an AT1-receptor antagonist, blocked the transient inhibitory effect of ANG II, whereas the AT2-receptor antagonist PD-123319 had no effect. Autocrine- or paracrine-acting transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1), believed to be a mediator of ANG II-induced inhibitory effects, was not responsible for the delay of PDGF-BB-induced DNA synthesis, because a potent TGF-β1 neutralizing antibody could not reverse this effect of ANG II, nor was the delay of the PDGF-BB effect caused by inhibition of PDGF-β-receptor phosphorylation as shown by Western blot analysis of immunoprecipitated PDGF-β receptor. In conclusion, our results show that ANG II can exert a transient inhibitory effect on PDGF-BB-induced proliferation via the AT1 receptor.
