Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells as an In Vitro model for Human Cardiomyocytes to Study Maturation and Metabolism

Abstract:

This project aimed to generate a mature population of human induced pluripotent stem cell derived cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CM) which would have the metabolic phenotype of cardiomyocytes in the adult heart as metabolic disorders are strongly linked with cardiovascular disease. Two published differentiation protocols were assessed, and the Wnt-modulation protocol was chosen as it upregulated the gene expression of cardiac genes. In addition, after introducing some alterations, such as tran...
