Brief description Approximately 5-10% of pregnancies are complicated by hypertension with associated health risks for both mother and child. To keep blood pressure at normal levels during pregnancy requires active regulation, but underlying processes are not yet fully understood. We have identified a molecule which crucially controls blood pressure during pregnancy. In this proposal we will study how the molecule remodels blood vessels in pregnant females to optimize pharmacological intervention and pregnancy outcomes in humans.
