The development of the cardiovascular system is a rapidly
advancing area in biomedical research, now coupled with the
burgeoning field of cardiac regenerative medicine. A lucid
understanding of these fields is paramount to reducing human
cardiovascular diseases of both fetal and adult origin. Significant
progress can now be made through a comprehensive investigation of
embryonic development and its genetic control circuitry.
"Heart Development and Regeneration, " written by experts in the
field, provides essential information on topics ranging from the
evolution and lineage origins of the developing cardiovascular
system to cardiac regenerative medicine. A reference for
clinicians, medical researchers, students, and teachers, this
publication offers broad coverage of the most recent advances.
Volume One discusses heart evolution, contributing cell
lineages; model systems; cardiac growth; morphology and asymmetry;
heart patterning; epicardial, vascular, and lymphatic development;
and congenital heart diseases.
Volume Two includes chapters on transcription factors and
transcriptional control circuits in cardiac development and
disease; epigenetic modifiers including microRNAs, genome-wide
mutagenesis, imaging, and proteomics approaches; and the theory and
practice of stem cells and cardiac regeneration.
