Mineralocorticoid receptor, CYP11B2 mRNA expression, and atrial matrix remodelling in patients with atrial fibrillation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Atrial fibrillation is associated with the activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in the atria. It is not clear whether the expression of mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) and aldosterone synthase CYPII B2 in patients with atrial fibrillation is altered. This study aimed to investigate the mRNA expression of MR and CYPIIB2 and to… (More)
