Washington: Fat surrounding the outside of arteries in humans—particularly the left coronary artery—may influence the onset of coronary artery disease, or atherosclerosis, researchers at UC have revealed.These findings may help in identifying the molecular culprit, with the goal of creating targeted therapies for atherosclerosis before the disease forms.Coronary artery disease is a narrowing of the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart.Tapan Chatterjee, PhD, and researchers in the division of cardiovascular diseases at UC found through global gene expression analysis (measurement of the activity of thousands of genes at once) that this outer fat tissue—known as perivascular fat tissue—is different from subcutaneous (beneath the skin) fat tissues in other parts of the body.
