BACKGROUND In the myocardium, myocyte cell division is irreversibly blocked shortly after birth. The signal that initiates cell cycle withdrawal is unknown. The purpose of this study was to relate changes in expression of beta1 integrin and its associated alpha subunits to cardiomyocyte cell cycle progression during the fetal-to-neonatal developmental transition in rat. METHODS AND RESULTS The developmental expression pattern and function of beta 1 integrin and several of its associated alpha… CONTINUE READING
