Abstract

Hypertension has complex vascular pathogenesis and therefore the molecular etiology remains poorly elucidated. Endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS), which is a condition of the unfolded/misfolded protein accumulation in the endoplasmic reticulum, has been defined as a potential target for cardiovascular disease. In the present study, the effects of ERS inhibition on hypertension-induced alterations in the vessels were investigated.
