DeleBon of the orthologous 70 ­kb non ­coding interval on mouse chromosome4 affects cardiac expression of neighboring genes, as well as proliferaBon properBes of vascular cells. Cardiac expression of two genes near the non ­ coding interval, Cdkn2a and Cdkn2b, is severely reduced Primary cultures of Cdkn2a ­ or Cdkn2b ­ deficient fibroblasts and Cdkn2a ­deficient aSMCs show increased proliferaBon rates Mechanism might be a long ­non ­coding RNA in the risk interval that controls expression of CDKN2a and CDKN2b 5 5/7/13 Post–genome-wide association study (GWAS) strategies, and biological and clinical implications of GWAS findings.
