Regulation of cardiac hypertrophy by miR-208 (WP1526)

Mus musculus

MicroRNA-208a regulates cardiac hypertrophy pathways in mice. MicroRNAs are shown in purple. Knock out and overexpression of miR-208a are shown in blue. Processes are shown at the top and include hypertrophy, atrial fibrilation and prolonged PR interval & abberand conduction.
