It was only approximately 15 years ago that methodologies evolved to the point where we began to manipulate the genetic apparatus of the mouse such that proteins of the investigator's choice could be expressed in a 4-chambered, mammalian heart. Our abilities to express both normal and mutated proteins in the heart or to create genetic nulls in which the protein is not expressed at all continue to evolve. With the tools now available, one can target protein expression to the different cell types… CONTINUE READING
