Inherited cardiac arrhythmias such as Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) result in aberrant electrical propagation at the cellular level which can degenerate to irregular ventricular rhythm and increase the risk for sudden cardiac death. Classically, LQTS was believed to be caused by one mutation in one [read more]

Endothelial cells (ECs) are central determinants of vascular health. Dysfunction of ECs, characterized in part by reduced nitric oxide (NO) signaling, contributes to various cardiovascular diseases worldwide. Multiple lines of evidence support an essential role for KLF2 and KLF4 in endothelial [read more]
