Endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and receptor-type vascular endothelial protein tyrosine phosphatase (VE-PTP) are one of the majors signaling pathways related to endothelial health in diabetes. Several reports have shown that the inhibition of VE-PTP can lead the nitric oxide production, although repeated studies showed that VE-PTP regulated the eNOS exclusive at Ser1177 in indirect-manner. A recent, exciting paper (Siragusa et al. in Cardiovasc Res, 2020. ), showing that VE-PTP regulates eNOS in a direct-manner, dephosphorylating eNOS at Tyr81 and indirect at Ser1177 and the effects of a VE-PTP inhibitor, AKB-9778, in the blood pressure from diabetic patients.
