Zebrafish is an emerging model system for cardiac conduction and regeneration. Zebrafish heart regenerates after 20% ventricular resection within 60 days. Whether cardiac conduction phenotype correlated with cardiomyocyte regeneration remained undefined. Longitudinal monitoring of the adult zebrafish heart (n = 12) was performed in terms of atrial contraction (PR intervals), ventricular depolarization (QRS complex) and repolarization (heart rated corrected QTc interval). Baseline… CONTINUE READING
