MiRNA-208a and miRNA-208b are triggered in thyroid hormone-induced cardiac hypertrophy - role of type 1 Angiotensin II receptor (AT1R) on miRNA-208a/α-MHC modulation.

Abstract

Hyperthyroidism promotes cardiac hypertrophy and the Angiotensin type 1 receptor (AT1R) has been demonstrated to mediate part of this response. Recent studies have uncovered a potentially important role for the microRNAs (miRNAs) in the control of diverse aspects of cardiac function. Then, the objective of the present study was to investigate the action… (More)
