Newly discovered gene may protect against heart disease 14.2.2018 General News
Scientists have identified a gene that may play a protective role in preventing heart disease. The gene, called MeXis, acts within key cells inside clogged arteries to help remove excess cholesterol from blood vessels, said researchers at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the US. Published in the journal Nature Medicine, the study in mice found that MeXis controls the expression of a protein that pumps cholesterol out of cells in the artery wall. MeXis is an example of a "selfish" gene, one that is presumed to have no function because it does not make a protein product, researchers said. However, recent studies have suggested that these so-called "unhelpful" genes can actually perform important biological functions without making proteins and instead producing a special class of molecules called long non-coding RNAs, or lncRNAs. "What this study tells us is that lncRNAs are important for the inner workings of cells involved in the development of heart disease," said ...
