Vascular injury induces posttranscriptional regulation of the Id3 gene: cloning of a novel Id3 isoform expressed during vascular lesion formation in rat and human atherosclerosis.


The molecular mechanisms that regulate the proliferation of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) of the vasculature in response to injury are poorly understood. Members of the inhibitor of DNA binding (Id) class of helix-loop-helix transcription factors are known to regulate the growth of a variety of cell types; however, the expression of the various Id genes in… (More)
