The Dark That Matters: Essential Role of the Long Non-coding RNA CARMN in Regulating Smooth Muscle Phenotype

  1. Gain information about the underappreciated role of non-coding RNAs in smooth muscle biology and the discovery of long non-coding RNA CARMN.
  2. The long non-coding RNA CARMN is specifically expressed in smooth muscle cells and is the first lncRNA identified indispensable for smooth muscle contractility.
  3. Loss-of-function mutation of CARMN in humans may cause visceral myopathy and aortic aneurysm.
