Early cardiac gene transcript levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells reflect severity in stable coronary artery disease.


INTRODUCTION The early cardiac marker genes myocardin, GATA4 and Nkx2.5, play a role in both embryonic cardiovascular development and adult cardiovascular disease. We evaluated transcript levels of myocardin, GATA4 and Nkx2.5 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) and we examined the relationship… (More)
