Why cigarette smoking is not good for your heart: Mechanistic  and functional insights into how cigarette smoking accelerates cardiac dysfunction: Cigarette smoking augments DNA damage responses, attenuates telomerase expression, promotes telomere shortening, and attenuates cardiomyocyte survival after myocardial infarction, via down regulation of PNUTS and others, 28/August/2019, 1.55 pm

What they say:  A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac ageing and function.” This study was published, in the 7 March  2013 issue of of […]
