Endothelial damage is strongly associated with cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. Bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in the maintenance of endothelial homeostasis and contribute to re-endothelialization of injured vessels as well as revascularization of ischemic tissues. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been(More)
BACKGROUND Dysfunction of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) is associated with the onset of cardiovascular disorders. Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) have been recognized as novel biomarkers and potential therapeutic targets. Here, we examined the role of miR-26a overexpression in atherosclerosis and explored the underlying mechanisms. (More)
