Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell (BMSC) transplantation has been shown to effectively improve cardiac function in experimental animals and patients with myocardial infarction and heart hypertrophy. BMSCs exert potent effects on cardiomyocytes through the inhibition of cardiac apoptosis, the attenuation of cardiac inflammation, etc. However, novel biological actions of BMSCs on cardiomyocytes remain to be explored. The present study was designed to investigate whether BMSCs affect… CONTINUE READING
