Although tissue-engineering approaches have led to significant progress in the quest of finding a viable substitute for dysfunctional myocardium, the vascularization of such bioartificial constructs still remains a major challenge. Hence, there is a need for model systems that allow us to study and better understand cardiac and vascular biology to overcome(More)
The ability to generate patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) provides a unique opportunity for modeling heart disease in vitro. In this study, we generated iPSCs from a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) caused by a missense mutation S635A in RNA-binding motif protein 20 (RBM20) and investigated the functionality and cell biology(More)
The subject of our study is clustering in a population of excitable systems driven by Gaussian white noise and with randomly distributed coupling strength. The cluster state is frequency-locked state in which all functional units run at the same noise-induced frequency. Cooperative dynamics of this regime is described in terms of effective synchronization(More)
Changes of the functional indices of central and intracardiac hemodynamics during treatment with hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, as well as after cadaver kidney transplantation, were studied in 44 patients with the terminal stage of chronic renal failure by means of radiocardiography with 131I-albumin. The signs of cardiac insufficiency were evaluated(More)
