Genome-wide studies of gene expression relevant to coronary artery disease
Current Opinion in Cardiology, 06/26/2012
Hsu J et al. – Cataloging the genetics of gene expression provides a small but crucial molecular link between genetics and clinical phenotypes such as atherosclerosis. Thus, gene expression is an endophenotype that can lead to the discovery of the underlying genes responsible for increasing atherosclerosis risk and potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets.
