Zheng, Zhou publish in Journal of Physiology

Jing Zheng, PhD, professor in the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences, recently published an article in the Journal of Physiology entitled “MicroRNA-29 differentially mediates preeclampsia-dysregulated cellular responses to cytokines in female and male fetal endothelial cells.” Chi Zhou, PhD, a formal member of Division of Reproductive Sciences, is the first author and co-correspondence. 

In the article, Zheng, Zhou and co-authors reveal fetal sex-specific dysregulation of target genes of two microRNAs in fetal endothelial cells from preeclampsia. This differential dysregulation may contribute to fetal sex-specific endothelial dysfunction in offspring born to preeclamptic mothers.
