Who is most likely to develop coronary artery disease?

  • Coronary artery disease is characterized by a dysfunction of the endothelial cells that form the innermost lining of all blood vessels.
  • A new study has identified five biological pathways regulated by a few genes that could potentially play a prominent role in coronary artery disease through their involvement in endothelial cell function.
  • Notably, these pathways included genes whose role in coronary artery disease has not been previously demonstrated.
  • One of the genes in these pathways, TLNRD1, plays an essential role in endothelial function, cardiovascular health, and potentially coronary artery disease, according to the study.
  • These findings could lead to the development of novel therapies targeting endothelial cell dysfunction in coronary artery disease.
