RNA Sequencing of Pulmonary Arterial Endothelial Cells in Pulmonary Hypertensive Patients and Controls
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The transcriptome of pulmonary arterial endothelial cells from healthy lungs and from lungs of patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension have been analyzed and specific differences in disease-relevant pathways were identified. The genes identified as altered in these patients have direct effects on pulmonary arterial endothelial cell function. This finding may underlie the inability of the pulmonary vasculature to respond to and repair the damage observed in pulmonary hypertension.
