OBJECTIVE Calcific aortic valve disease is an active process involving a wide range of pathologic changes. Valve interstitial cells are the most prevalent cells in the heart valve and maintain normal valve structure and function. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are essential posttranscriptional modulators of gene expression, and miRNA-30b is a known repressor of bone(More)
OBJECTIVES Brahma-related gene 1 (BRG1) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important roles in cellular processes. However, little is known regarding their roles in thoracic aortic aneurysms. We investigated BRG1 expression in thoracic aortic aneurysms and the roles of BRG1 and the lncRNA HIF 1 alpha-antisense RNA 1 in regulating the proliferation and(More)
