UC Heart, Lung and Vascular Institute and Cardiovascular Center 2014-15 Seminar Series presents:

Role of the KLF2 Transcription Factor in Atherosclerosis

Jerry Lingrel, Ph.D., Professor and Interim Chair; Distinguished Research Professor, Dept. of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry & Microbiology; UC College of Medicine

Date and Time: Monday, November 10th, 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Location: Medical Sciences Building, 3rd Floor, Room 3351

Lunch will be served at 11:45 am.

The Lingrel laboratory has been studying a transcription factor, KLF2, which they discovered several years ago. This transcription factor plays a role in a number of biological processes. Their current studies involve the role of KLF2 in atherosclerosis. These studies show that KLF2 upregulates anti-inflammatory pathways and protects against atherosclerosis. These pathways include cytokine and chemokine pathways and the involvement of specific miRNAs.
