UltraRapid Communication Genetic Manipulation of Periostin Expression in the Heart Does Not Affect Myocyte Content, Cell Cycle Activity, or Cardiac Repair

Abstract

Following a pathological insult, the adult mammalian heart undergoes hypertrophic growth and remodeling of the extracellular matrix. Although a small subpopulation of cardiomyocytes can reenter the cell cycle following cardiac injury, the myocardium is largely thought to be incapable of significant regeneration. Periostin, an extracellular matrix protein… (More)
