Circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) may be a biomarker for vascular function and cardiovascular risk in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase 2 (DDAH2) regulates the function of EPCs. This study aimed to examine whether hypermethylation of DDAH2 promoter contributes to impaired function of EPCs in… CONTINUE READING
