Introduction Vascular smooth muscle cells (vSMCs) develop from cell lineage precursors and progenitors to form a layer of non-striated contractile mural cells located between the tunica media and tunica adventitia of blood vessels which

serine/threonine kinase receptors (S/TKR) notably transforming growth factor (TGF)-β type 1 receptor (TGFBR1). In human vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), treatment with thrombin ( 12 , 13 ) or endothelin-1 (ET-1) ( 14 , 15 ) stimulates carboxy
