MicroRNA-221/222 regulate ox-LDL-induced endothelial apoptosis via Ets-1/p21 inhibition


Endothelial cells (ECs) apoptosis induced by oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) is thought to play an essential role in atherosclerosis. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short non-coding RNAs, acting as posttranscriptional regulators of protein-coding genes involved in vascular cell biology. MiRNA-221 and miRNA-222 (miR-221/222) are known to be… (More)
