MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a novel class of small, non-coding RNAs that play a significant role in both inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases. Immune cells, especially T helper (Th) cells, are critical in the development of atherosclerosis and the onset of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). To assess whether inflammation-related miRNAs (such as miR-155, 146a,(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between human platelet alloantigens-2 (HPA-2) polymorphism, Kozak sequence polymorphism, macroglycopeptide region variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) polymorphism of GPIbα and coronary heart disease (CHD). METHODS In the present study, blood obtained from 403 patients with CHD and 500 healthy controls was detected(More)
The present study aimed to identify the microRNA (miRNA) responsible for the development of primary hypertension, and examine the downstream signaling pathway, which mediates the effect of the miRNA. Reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction analysis was performed to identify which miRNA may be involved in the pathogenesis of(More)
