The histogenesis of the separation between atrial and ventricular myocardium at the atrioventricular junction in the developing human heart has been investigated immunohistochemically by using monoclonal antibodies specific for atrioventricular cushion tissue, mesenchymal cells, atrial and ventricular myocardium, and myocardium of the primary ring. It was found that the insulation between the muscle masses of atrium and ventricle is established by the fusion of the tissues of the… CONTINUE READING
