The good Hmox1, the bad Hmox1 and the ugly... abdominal aortic aneurysm

One in one hundred men over 60 years old will develop abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), and only 15-35% of people survive the aneurysm rupture. Aleksandra Piechota-Polańczyk and co-workers showed recently that Hmox1-deficient mice are protected from the formation of angiotensin II-induced abdominal aortic aneurysm. On the other hand, if they do develop AAA, they are significantly more prone to rupture.
