Abstract.Cardiovascular diseases are associated with multiple changes in gene expression. In general, cardiac tissue is not accessible to expression analysis. This study was designed to investigate expression of cardiac significant genes in white blood cells of heart failure patients and to identify differentially expressed genes.The quantitative real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method was used for quantification of messenger RNA (mRNA) transcripts in blood… CONTINUE READING
