In the current study, we showed that [H.sub.2]S protected H9c2 cardioblasts from [H.sub.2][O.sub.2]-induced oxidative stress.

In the immediate postnatal life, Isl-1 cells and cardioblasts progressively differentiate into mature cardiomyocytes [64, 65].
One source is a subpopulation of pre-existing cardiomyocytes that are not terminally differentiated and possess the ability to divide when given the appropriate signal (3-6), such as the normally sized Ki67 positively stained cardiac myocytes scattered along the edge of the infarct or other native progenitor cells, such as the recently described isl1+ cardioblasts, which are present in postnatal hearts (24).
