This volume of the esteemedProgress in Molecular Biology and Translational Scienceseries focuses on cutting-edge research related to the genetics of cardiovascular disease. Written by top experts in the field, this volume covers a range of topics, including:

  • Genetic models of atherosclerosis
  • MicroRNAs in cardiovascular disease
  • The role of the transcription factor KLF2 in vascular development and disease
  • Zebrafish as models of cardiovascular disease and hematopoietic development

Progress in Molecular Biology and Translational Scienceprovides a forum for discussion of new discoveries, approaches, and ideas in molecular biology. It contains contributions from leaders in their fields and abundant references.

  • The authors are all experts in the field
  • The reviews are in themselves comprehensive
  • Each topic has the potential to lead to advances in therapy of cardiovascular disease

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES "Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist-for whom the numerous references will be invaluable-but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell."--BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL
