Genetic research identifies novel pathway leading to myocardial infarction

November 10, 2013
Starting with a severely affected family, a research team led by Jeanette Erdmann, Christian Hengstenberg and Heribert Schunkert (Institut für Integrative und Experimentelle Genomik, University of Lübeck and Deutsches Herzzentrum München) identified a novel mechanism leading to myocardial infarction. Specifically, the scientists detected two mutations that jointly blocked nitric oxide signalling in platelets leading to accelerated thrombus formation. Another variant of the same enzyme, affecting a large proportion of the population, was also found to affect coronary risk, albeit to a much lesser extent. Scientists from the Berliner Age Study II (BASE-II) participated with recent data from the BASE-II study. Co-authors are the speaker of the BASE-II consortium, Elisabeth Steinhagen-Thiessen as well as Lars Bertram from the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics and Shu-Chen Li from the Technical University Dresden, who is working as a visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development. The work was published on November 10th in the prestigious journal Nature. [more]
