Advanced age is an independent risk factor for ageing-related complex diseases, such as coronary artery disease, stroke, and hypertension, which are common but life threatening and related to the ageing-associated vascular dysfunction. On the other hand, patients with progeria syndromes suffer from serious atherosclerosis, suggesting that the impaired vascular functions may be critical to organismal ageing, or vice versa. However, it remains largely unknown how vascular cells, particularly… CONTINUE READING
