The crucial role of chemokines in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis has been widely recognized. Through essential functions in leukocyte recruitment, chemokines govern the infiltration with mononuclear cells and macrophage accumulation in atherosclerotic lesions. Beyond recruitment, chemokines also provide homeostatic functions supporting cell survival and mediating the mobilization and homing of progenitor cells. As a new regulatory layer, several microRNAs (miRNAs) have been… CONTINUE READING
