A major challenge in stem cell therapy for cardiac repair is how to obtain normally functioning stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes. We aim to address the effects of C-reactive protein (CRP) on the cardiac differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells. Immunostaining, Western blotting and electrophysiology were employed. A hundred fifty milligran/liters CRP… CONTINUE READING
