Nutrients: the environmental regulation of cardiovascular gene expression

  title={Nutrients: the environmental regulation of cardiovascular gene expression},
  author={M. Minieri and Paolo Di Nardo},
  journal={Genes & Nutrition},
The complexity of nutrient–gene interactions has led to the development of a new branch in the nutrition sciences, the nutrigenomics. The individual susceptibility to nutrients based on environment → genotype → phenotype interplay makes this new research field extremely promising although complex. In this review, we highlight and examine recent findings and the most relevant hypotheses on the role of the diet in the onset and progression of cardiovascular diseases. The effect of unbalanced… CONTINUE READING
