A series of recent studies strongly suggests that the myocardium of the cardiac distal outflow tract (d-OFT) does not derive from the original precardiac mesoderm but, instead, differentiates from a so-called anterior heart field. Similar findings were also reported for the endocardium of the d-OFT. However, very little information is available on the origin of the epicardium of the OFT. To address this issue, we have performed a study in which we have combined experimental in vivo and in vitro… CONTINUE READING
