Exposure to welding fumes is associated with hypomethylation of the F2RL3 gene: a cardiovascular disease marker.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Welders are at risk for cardiovascular disease. Recent studies linked tobacco smoke exposure to hypomethylation of the F2RL3 (coagulation factor II (thrombin) receptor-like 3) gene, a marker for cardiovascular disease prognosis and mortality. However, whether welding fumes cause hypomethylation of F2RL3 remains unknown.
