Video released: model for ischemic heart disease with human iPS cardiomyocytes

Summary Dr. Ken Takahashi of Okayama University published a video article about the model of ischemic heart disease using human iPS heart cells. The method makes it easier than before to create a cardiac ischemia model. The use of this model will lead to the development of drugs for ischemic heart disease and the elucidation…

Heart attack modeled with human stem cells

Toward the development of individual model of ischemic heart disease Heart attack caused by ischemia is a major medical problem that threatens our healthy life. Researchers at Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences developed a model of myocardial infarction using cardiomyocytes differentiated from human induced pluripotent stem cells. The journal Biochemical and…

How do heart cells sense they are stretched?

Heart cells sense that they are stretched when the heart is subjected to high blood pressure. But how? It is known that concentration of calcium ion in cardiomyocytes increases when they are stretched. Takahashi and co-workers found that a specific protein, L-type calcium channel, is the key to this calcium increase event using rat cardiomyocytes.…
