The search for ideal cell candidate for heart regeneration, as well as for putative cardiac stem cell responsible for cardiac tissue homeostasis, is occupying both basic scientists and clinicians. Growing number of studies and publications indicate epicardium-derived cells as cardiac stem cells. While it is beyond doubt that these cells contribute to normal development of the heart during organogenesis, it remains an open question whether mesothelial epicardial cells can preserve their… CONTINUE READING
