AHR Protein Plays Key Role in PAH Development, May Be Therapy Target

Activation of a protein called aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is essential for the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a study found. The findings imply that targeting AHR could be a useful strategy to treat PAH, according to researchers. The results were published in the journal PNAS, in the study “Aryl hydrocarbon receptor is essential for the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension.” PAH is characterized by high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries, which are…
