The heart's Da Vinci code: a Renaissance at Keystone

Development. 2007 May;134(9):1631-3. doi: 10.1242/dev.002014. Epub 2007 Mar 29.

Abstract

At a recent Keystone symposium on "Molecular Pathways in Cardiac Development and Disease" in Colorado, significant advances in the understanding of heart development were discussed. The identification and isolation of cardiovascular progenitors, their modulation by secreted factors, and some tantalizing insights into cardiac regeneration were some of the highlights of what was characterized by some as a renaissance in cardiovascular development.
