Regulation of the growth of nonmuscle heart cells in culture


Primary cultures of neonatal rat hearts contain both striated muscle (myocytes) as well as nonmuscle heart cells (NMHC). Although myocytes do not divide in culture, NMHC do increase in number. The growth of NMHC is dependent on the concentration of serum in the media over a range of 1 to 10%. When compared to growth in 10%, cells in 1% serum have a… (More)
