A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

BACKGROUND: The ventricular conduction system (VCS) coordinates the heartbeat and is composed of central components (the atrioventricular node, bundle, and right and left bundle branches) and a peripheral Purkinje fiber network. Conductive myocytes develop from common progenitor cells with working myocytes in a bimodal process of lineage restriction followed by limited outgrowth. The lineage relationship between progenitor cells giving rise to different components of the VCS is unclear.

RESULTS: Cell lineage contributions to different components of the VCS were analysed by a combination of retrospective clonal analysis, regionalized transgene expression studies, and genetic tracing experiments using Connexin40-GFP mice that precisely delineate the VCS. Analysis of a library of hearts containing rare large clusters of clonally related myocytes identifies two VCS lineages encompassing either the right Purkinje fiber network or left bundle branch. Both lineages contribute to the atrioventricular bundle and right bundle branch that segregate early from working myocytes. Right and left VCS lineages share the transcriptional program of the respective ventricular working myocytes and genetic tracing experiments discount alternate progenitor cell contributions to the VCS.

CONCLUSIONS: The mammalian VCS is comprised of cells derived from two lineages, supporting a dual contribution of first and second heart field progenitor cells.
