Abstract

Accumulating evidence suggests that urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) is involved in vascular remodeling and lumen stenosis after angioplasty and stenting. We have shown previously that increased uPA expression greatly promotes neointima formation and inward arterial remodeling after balloon injury. To evaluate the role of inflammation in early mechanisms responsible for inward arterial remodeling induced by uPA and elucidate the mechanisms of remodeling, we characterized changes in the expression profiles of 8,799 genes in injured rat carotid arteries 1 and 4 days after recombinant uPA treatment compared to vehicle. We used a standard model of the balloon catheter injury of the rat carotid followed by periadventitial application to the injured vessel of either uPA dissolved in Pluronic gel, or plain gel. Vessels were harvested and analyzed by immunohistochemistry, morphometry, microarray gene expression profiling and quantitative RT-PCR. Periadventitial application of uPA significantly reduced lumen size and vessel area encompassed by the external elastic lamina at both 1 and 4 days after treatment. Inflammatory cells accumulated in the arterial adventitia at both 1 and 4 days after uPA treatment. On the 4th day, increases in the areas and arterial cell numbers of all arterial layers were found. Among 79 differentially expressed known genes 1 day after uPA application, 12 proinflammatory genes, including TNF-α and TACE, and 15 genes related to mitochondrial metabolism and oxidative stress regulation were identified. Four days after injury in uPA-treated arteries, 3 proinflammatory and 2 oxidation-related genes were differentially expressed. We conclude that uPA likely promotes inward arterial remodeling by regulating oxidative stress and inflammation after arterial injury.
