Gene and cell level understanding the mechanisms driving atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease
see my website at http://www.uef.fi/en/web/vitamind…
The scientific interest of our team is on mechanisms of gene regulation and its impact on major common diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and cancer. Our investigations use methods of molecular biology, bioinformatics and systems biology.
Transcription factors regulate their target genes not only upon specific stimuli, but also through binding to specific DNA sequences. Genetic variation that occurs on those binding sequences may disturb target gene expression. It is also a potential source for the “missing variation” in polygenic...
