Hypertrophic and antihypertrophic microRNA levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and their relationship to left ventricular hypertrophy in patients with essential hypertension.

Abstract

MicroRNAs regulate several aspects of physiological and pathologic cardiac hypertrophy, and they represent promising therapeutic targets in cardiovascular disease. We assessed the expression levels of the microRNAs miR-1, miR-133a, miR-26b, miR-208b, miR-499, and miR-21, in 102 patients with essential hypertension and 30 healthy individuals. All patients… (More)
