Disturbance blood flow leads epigenetic atherosclerosis


Disturbance in blood flow leads to epigenetic changes, atherosclerosis

Disturbed patterns of blood flow induce lasting epigenetic changes to genes in the cells that line blood vessels, and those changes contribute to atherosclerosis, researchers have found. The findings suggest why the protective effects of good blood flow patterns, which aerobic exercise promotes, can persist over time. An epigenetic change to DNA is a chemical […]
