It has been well documented that cardiovascular complications of diabetes account for 75% of all deaths in patients with type 2 diabetes. Hypertension occurs approximately twice as frequently in patients with diabetes compared with non-diabetic individuals. Although it is clear that the state of diabetes confers an increased risk of cardiovascular events, the mechanism by which metabolic perturbations influence vascular function and structure remain to be further defined. Emerging data suggest that peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-3 (PPAR3) and angiotensin II (Ang II) type 1 receptor (AT1R) are two critical determinants that may provide functional links between obesity/diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Recently, we have reported the identification of nitroalkene derivatives of linoleic acid (LNO2) and oleic acid (OA-NO2) with concentrations exceeding 1
