OBJECTIVES To establish a human fetal cardiomyocyte culture and to investigate whether the genes that encode transporters that may influence influx or efflux of bile acids are expressed in human fetal cardiomyocytes. DESIGN Laboratory study. SETTING Imperial College London. SAMPLE Six fetal hearts were obtained at the time of termination of pregnancy at 12-13 weeks of gestation and used to generate primary human cardiomyocyte cultures. METHODS To confirm the presence of cardiomyocytes… CONTINUE READING
