The short- and long-term effects of stimuli such as shear stress on blood vessels are mediated through endothelial nitric oxide synthase. But whereas the short-term effects occur through transient increases in cytosolic calcium, the long-term changes result from constitutive activation of the synthase by the serine/threonine kinase Akt.
