    The heart of higher vertebrates is a structurally complicated multi-chambered pump that contracts synchronously. For its proper function a number of distinct integrated components have to be generated, including force-generating compartments, unidirectional valves, septa and a system in charge...

    The Drosophila heart tube represents a structure that similarly to vertebrates' primary heart tube exhibits a large lumen; the mechanisms promoting heart tube morphology in both Drosophila and vertebrates are poorly understood. We identified Multiplexin (Mp), the Drosophila orthologue of...

    Fetal hearts show a remarkable ability to develop under hypoxic conditions. The metabolic flexibility of fetal hearts allows sustained development under low oxygen conditions. In fact, hypoxia is critical for proper myocardial formation. Particularly, hypoxia inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) and...

    Background: Adverse drug reactions in children are an important public health problem. We have undertaken a systematic review of observational studies in children in three settings: causing admission to hospital, occurring during hospital stay and occurring in the community. We were particularly...

    During mouse embryogenesis, proper formation of the heart and liver is especially important and is crucial for embryonic viability. In this study, we showed that Mab21l2 was expressed in the trabecular and compact myocardium, and that deletion of Mab21l2 resulted in a reduction of the trabecular...

    In acute diabetic myocardium, calcium signals propagated by intracellular calcium transients participate in the protection of cell energetics via upregulating the formation of mitochondrial energy transition pores (ETP). Mechanisms coupling ETP formation with an increase in membrane fluidity and...

    Myocardial ischemia is a primary cause for the loss of vital components such as cardiomyocytes in the heart, leading to myocardial infarction and eventual cardiac dysfunction or heart failure. Suppressed angiogenesis plays a determinant role in the pathogenesis of myocardial infarction. In...

  • Mutation in myosin heavy chain 6 causes atrial septal defect. Yung-Hao Ching; Ghosh, Tushar K.; Cross, Steve J.; Packham, Elizabeth A.; Honeyman, Louise; Loughna, Siobhan; Robinson, Thelma E.; Dearlove, Andrew M.; Ribas, Gloria; Bonser, Andrew J.; Thomas, Neil R.; Scotter, Andrew J.; Caves, Leo S. D.; Tyrrell, Graham P.; Newbury-Ecob, Ruth A.; Munnich, Arnold; Bonnet, Damien; Brook, J. David // Nature Genetics;Apr2005, Vol. 37 Issue 4, p423 

    Atrial septal defect is one of the most common forms of congenital heart malformation. We identified a new locus linked with atrial septal defect on chromosome 14q12 in a large family with dominantly inherited atrial septal defect. The underlying mutation is a missense substitution, I820N,...
