Study Uncovers Ties between Atherosclerosis Risk SNPs and Circular Non-Coding RNA Levels

Using a variety of genetic approaches, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill researchers have shown that some SNPs previously linked to atherosclerosis risk can affect the splicing of a long, non-coding RNA that's found in both circular and linear forms in human cells.
