Heart Self-Repair May be Prompted with Regulatory RNAs

Heart tissue is notoriously poor at self-repair, but it isn’t entirely helpless. It’s just super-slow because mature, developed hearts retain very few heart cells that hold regeneration potential. For example, in adult mouse or human heart, new cardiomyocytes (CMs) are ...
