Expression of Connexin43 in Cerebral Arteries of Patients with Moyamoya Disease

0

Moyamoya disease has a high incidence of cerebral vascular accident in children and adolescents, which can endanger the physical and mental health of children and adults seriously. However, the etiology and the pathogenesis of moyamoya disease remain unclear. Connexin43 (Cx43) is a predominant intercellular gap junction protein that plays an important role in the normal function of arteries and the development of several cardiovascular diseases. We aimed to preliminarily investigate pathological changes and the expression of Cx43 in cerebral arteries of patients with moyamoya disease.
