Effects of LA on eNOS phosphorylation via the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway in HUVECs. HUVECs treated with LA (15 μM) for 20 min and co-incubated with or without PI3K inhibitor (LY294002, 25 μM) and an Akt phosphorylation inhibitor (A6730, 5 μM) for 15 h. a Phosphorylation of eNOS and Akt was inhibited by LY294002; however, it was enhanced by treatment with LA, and (b) A6730 also suppressed the phosphorylation of eNOS and Akt, but their phosphorylation was improved by LA treatment
