Together these data strongly suggest that rhoA has a major role in mediating agonist-induced Ca2+ sensitization in vascular smooth muscle. Although rhoA is undoubtedly important, it is not likely to be the sole regulator 25 Vascular tone of MLCP activity. , 1999). PKC and rhoA may therefore cooperate to regulate MLCP, although current data suggest that rhoA is more important (Somlyo and Somlyo, 2000).
