Neuropeptide Y gene polymorphisms confer risk of early-onset atherosclerosis.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-01)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a strong candidate gene for coronary artery disease (CAD). We have previously identified genetic linkage to familial CAD in the genomic region of NPY. We performed follow-up genetic, biostatistical, ...
Anti-beta(1)-adrenergic receptor antibodies and heart failure: causation, not just correlation.
(J Clin Invest, 2004-05)
Antibodies specific for the beta(1)-adrenergic receptor are found in patients with chronic heart failure of various etiologies. From work presented in this issue of the JCI, we can now infer that these antibodies actually ...
Anti–β1-adrenergic receptor antibodies and heart failure: causation, not just correlation
(Journal of Clinical Investigation, 2004-05-15)
Beta-arrestins regulate atherosclerosis and neointimal hyperplasia by controlling smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration.
(Circ Res, 2008-07-03)
Atherosclerosis and arterial injury-induced neointimal hyperplasia involve medial smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation and migration into the arterial intima. Because many 7-transmembrane and growth factor receptors promote ...
