Abstract

Coronary artery disease (CAD) that results from lesions of the vascular wall is a major cause of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke. A human pedigree with a predisposition to CAD and MI has been shown to harbor a mutation in the MEF2A transcription factor. These findings reveal a new function for this regulator of cardiovascular development and raise intriguing questions about the underlying mechanisms of CAD.
