  • Tissue-specific progenitor cells contribute to local cellular regeneration and maintain organ function. Recently, we have determined that cardiac side-population (CSP) cells represent a distinct cardiac progenitor cell population, capable of in vitro differentiation into functional cardiomyocytes. The response of endogenous CSP to myocardial injury, however, and the cellular mechanisms that maintain this cardiac progenitor cell pool in vivo remain unknown. In this report we demonstrate that… CONTINUE READING
