In this article, we reviewed the current understanding of the MEF2A mutation and CAD, as well as MI.
MEF2A belongs to a family of four closely related transcription factors (MEF2-A, -B, -C, and -D) that are conserved from yeast to humans.[sup][2] The N termini of MEF2 proteins contain MADS and MEF2 domains.
Consistent with its potential involvement in vascular function, MEF2A is expressed at high concentrations in the endothelial and smooth muscle layers of the coronary arteries.
Among these 93 genes, MEF2A caught the authors' attention.
