Heparin Induces the Mobilization of Heart-Derived Multipotent Mesoangioblasts During Cardiac Surgery With Cardiopulmonary Bypass or Cardiac Catheterization.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We previously identified circulating mesoangioblasts (cMABs), a subset of mesenchymal stem cells that express cardiac mesodermal markers, in patients undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). We also found that hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is upregulated during cardiac surgery with CPB in humans, and induces MAB-like cell… (More)
