A Short Note on Adult Heart Tissue and the Cardiomyocytes Contraction

Jyothi Kolla

The recognition of the origin of cardiomyocytes are of critical consequence for the development of strategies capable of enhancing the growth response of the myocardium; in fact, cell therapy for the decompensated heart must be based on the acquisition of this fundamental biological knowledge areas. Cardiomyocytes are belonging to the family of muscle cells; however, they are highly different from other muscle cells in the human body. For instance, they lack my satellite cells that are associated with regular muscle cells and are used for repair and healing. Additionally, cardiomyocytes are typically imposed branch out whereas regular muscle cells are do not and instead form singular fibers.
