Studying signal transduction in hypertension model systems in vitro will include several steps: (1) develop the cell culture model and induce hypertensive changes, (2) observe kinase activation, (3) manipulate signal transduction pathways, and (4) observe physiologic outputs. This chapter will provide the reader with overviews of the techniques our lab uses to inhibit signaling pathways with inhibitory RNAs and the outputs we use to monitor the effects.
