We used global gene expression profiling at different times of differentiation to characterize the effect of TCDD-dependent AHR activation on gene expression in AHRpositive pAHRPuroIRESeGFP cardiomyocytes.
The cultured cardiomyocytes contracted spontaneously, a property of normal cardiac tissues.
In cardiomyocytes transfected with pGL2(-642) GDF15, cotransfection of the FSTL1 expression plasmid resulted in a 5.
The group also overcame the problem of body fluids carrying injected cardiomyocytes outside the heart by forming them into a cluster of about 1,000 cells so they will easily stick to the existing heart cells.
Investigation of the regenerative process through live imaging and molecular studies revealed how this happens: The cardiomyocytes "dedifferentiate" -- that is, they revert to an earlier form, something between an embryonic and an adult cell, which can then divide and differentiate into new heart cells.
Fluorescence measurements of the mobilization of cytosolic calcium in cultures of neonatal rat cardiomyocytes
From embryonic stem cells extracted from mice, scientists at Duke University successfully grew heart muscle cells known as cardiomyocytes.
Once mature, these cardiomyocytes were seen to beat in a laboratory dish.
The latter study extended these findings by suggesting that cardiomyocytes possess the potential to express syndecan-2.
4) demonstrated that G-CSF treatment in rats prevented cardiac remodeling and improved cardiac function after AMI by preserving the number of cardiomyocytes in the infarction area.
For example, CHAMP has been demonstrated to inhibit both hypertrophy of primary cardiomyocytes and proliferation of non-cardiac cells.
The autoantibodies were identified using a bioassay that utilized cultured, spontaneously beating, neonatal rat cardiomyocytes, which beat faster on [beta]-adrenergic stimulation.
