<p>At present, with the improvement of living standards and population aging, the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease is on the rise and has been a serious threat to human health. Statistics show that the current death caused by cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease has become the first cause of death has been increasing year by year. Therefore, studies on coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis (AS) have become a hot topic in clinical and basic research. In this study, the question of the effect of Notch signalling pathway on the relationship between endothelial dysfunction and endothelial stromal transformation in AS was studied in depth. Based on our results, we drew conclusions as follows. First, the Notch signalling pathway was activated in the atherosclerotic model; secondly, the Notch signalling pathway was demonstrated to enhance AS by promoting vascular endothelial dysfunction; thirdly, it was demonstrated that the Notch signalling pathway was mediated by promoting endothelial and to enhance AS; finally, we confirmed the endothelial function through the Notch signalling pathway to affect the transformation of endothelial stroma to achieve synergistic AS effect. The results of this study have a good guiding significance for the important role of Notch signalling in AS and indicate the ability to influence endothelial function and endothelial stromal transformation by intervening Notch signalling pathway and can affect the relationship between them, and thus eventually achieve the treatment of AS.</p>
