Intermittent Hypoxia Increased the Expression of ESM1 and ICAM-1 in Vascular Endothelial Cells via the Downregulation of microRNA-181a1

Researchers investigated inflammation-related transcripts in vascular endothelial cells exposed to intermittent hypoxia by real-time RT-PCR and found that intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and endothelial cell-specific molecule-1 (ESM1) mRNAs were significantly increased.
