Product Type: iCell Cardiomyocytes
In culture, iCell Cardiomyocytes progressively develop a more mature phenotype without signs of dedifferentiation. This phenotype is characterized by adult-like gene expression patterns, action potentials exhibiting ventricular atrial and nodal properties, coordinated calcium cycling and mechanical activity with pharmacological responses to pathologic (ET-1), physiologic (IGF-1) and autonomic (isoproterenol) stimuli similar to those characteristic of isolated adult cardiac myocytes.
This study demonstrates that iCell Cardiomyocytes recapitulate native tissue characteristics.
