Cardiovascular disease remains the major cause of mortality, and cardiac cell therapy has recently emerged as a paradigm for heart repair. The epicardium is a layer of mesothelial cells covering the heart that during development contributes to different cardiovascular lineages, including cardiomyocytes, but which becomes quiescent after birth. We previously revealed that the peptide thymosin beta 4 (Tβ4) can reactivate adult epicardium-derived cells (EPDCs) after myocardial infarction (MI), t...Expand abstract
