Dawn of the Epi-LncRNAs: new path from Myheart.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Myheart is a cardiac specific long-noncoding (lnc) RNA with targeted modulation of chromatin modifying SWI/SNF complex via direct interaction with Brg1. Genetic induction of Myheart in mouse heart has a significant protective effect against the pathogenesis of heart failure. LncRNAs are emerging epigenetic regulators with potentially important roles in cardiac development and diseases.
