Figure 7. The hypothesis of NF2/YAP/TEAD1 signaling axis in VSMC after PDGF-BB stimuli. PDGF-BB excretion after vascular injury induces nuclear NF2 phosphorylation, thereby causing inactivation of NF2. Decreased active NF2 led to dephosphorylation of YAP and subsequent nuclear translocation of YAP. Increased nuclear YAP binds to TEAD1 and positively regulates relative target gene expression.
