Patient-derived heart cells points to genetic control of cardiac function, US study finds

October 9, 2019

Instances of cardiac function/malfunction, such as irregular rhythms or heart failure, has been unclear in genome studies to date but researchers at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine have discovered that genetic variations influence heart function through the binding of a protein – essentially, turning “on/off” genes involved in heart development.
