Several regulatory RNAs are dysregulated in many cardiovascular diseases, such as heart failure, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction, suggesting that they might play an important role in regulating the expression of genes involved in such diseases. In the last few years, different studies have demonstrated the importance of regulatory RNAs in cardiac development and cell differentiation.
The observation that regulatory RNAs can be found circulating in the blood supports their potential as disease markers. Recent studies present encouraging results for disease prognosis and therapy.
This Special Issue is focused on the understanding of the role of regulatory RNAs (miRNAs, lncRNAs, circRNAs) in cardiovascular development and disease and their potential as biomarkers and therapeutic targets. We will consider original manuscripts, as well as reviews. Topics of interest include:
- Regulatory RNAs in cardiovascular development
- Regulatory RNAs in cardiovascular disease
- Cardiovascular disease therapeutics involving regulatory RNAs
- Regulatory RNAs as cardiovascular disease biomarkers
