Hepatocyte growth factor and its receptor are expressed in cardiac myocytes during early cardiogenesis.

Abstract

In the mouse, the heart primordium arises when mesoderm is set aside during gastrulation, is induced by pharyngeal endoderm, migrates ventrally to the midline of the embryo, forms a tube, and begins beating. Little is known of the molecular mechanisms that mediate the determination, mitosis, differentiation, and migration that lead to the beating heart… (More)
