About this Seminar

Cardiac maturation is an orchestrated process that allows cardiac cells to acquire their structural, metabolic and conduction characteristics. The Boudina Lab identified PRDM16 as a key transcriptional regulator of cardiac maturation. Mutation (human) and deletion (Mouse) of PRDM16 results in impaired cardiac maturation and causes cardiomyopathy.
