Core Tip Chronic hyperglycemia is a characteristic of diabetes and one of the major causal factors of diabetic complications. In type 2 diabetes mellitus, mechanical and biochemical stimuli activated profibrotic signaling cascades resulting in myocardial fibrosis, impaired cardiac performance, and ventricular stiffness. Glucose nonenzymatically reacts with extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins forming advanced glycation end products (AGEs). AGE-modified collagen increases matrix accumulation and stiffness by engaging the receptor for AGE (RAGE), the receptor for AGE. To date, our understanding of the AGE/RAGE cascade remains imprecise. This review discusses the AGE/RAGE signaling cascade and proposes an alternate role for Rap1a in diabetic cardiovascular ECM remodeling.
