Abstract: AbstractWe investigated the role of microRNAs (miRNA) in endothelial dysfunction in the setting of cardiometabolic disorders represented by type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). miR‐29 was dysregulated in resistance arterioles obtained by biopsy in T2DM patients. Intraluminal delivery of miR‐29a‐3p or miR‐29b‐3p mimics restored normal endothelium‐dependent vasodilation (EDVD) in T2DM arterioles that otherwise exhibited impaired EDVD. Intraluminal delivery of anti‐miR‐29b‐3p in arterioles from non‐DM human subjects …
