Abstract

We hypothesized that progesterone regulates thromboxane A2 receptor (TxA2R) density in primate vascular muscle and that TxA2R density correlates with coronary reactivity in vivo and in vitro. Reactivity to serotonin + U-46619 was determined by angiography in surgically post-menopausal [ovariectomized (Ovx)] rhesus monkeys without progesterone replacement and after 2-wk progesterone treatment (1-2 ng/ml). In untreated Ovx animals, 100 μmol/l serotonin + 1 μmol/l U-46619 (syringe concentrations) provoked vasospasm-like constrictions in six of six monkeys; zero of six progesterone-treated monkeys developed vasospasms. Sustained Ca2+ responses in vascular muscle cells isolated from Ovx coronaries (208±63% of basal 20 min after stimulation) treated with serotonin + U-46619 contrasted with transient Ca2+ responses (143±18% of basal and decreasing 5 rain after stimulation) in progesterone-treated monkeys. The maximum density of [1S-(1/,2J-(5Z),3/(1E, 3R*),4I)]-7-[3-(3-hydroxy- 4-(4′-[125I]iodophenoxy)-1-butenyl)-7-oxabicyclo [2.2.1]heptan-2-yl]-5-heptenoic acid ([125I]-BOP) binding was greater (P2R immunolabeling revealed greater coronary TxA2R labeling in Ovx compared with progesterone-treated monkeys. The results suggest that progesterone can decrease arterial TxA2R in Ovx monkeys.
