Researchers at the Montreal Heart Institute announced today that they have discovered the mechanism for the protective effects of reduced activity of the ADCY9 gene in atherosclerosis resulting from accumulation of fat in the artery walls. Indeed, a reduction of 65% of atherosclerosis occurs when the ADCY9 gene is not functional in mice, but only when another gene (CETP) is also absent. This benefit is explained by a marked reduction of inflammation in the arteries. These results have been published in the prestigious American scientific journal Circulation.
