Murine cardiomyocytes undergo proliferation, multinucleation, and polyploidization during the first 3 weeks of postnatal life, resulting in a mixture of diploid and tetraploid cardiomyocytes in the heart. Understanding the molecular differences between diploid and tetraploid cardiomyocytes from these processes has been limited due to lack of unique markers and their heterogenous origins. Here, we apply single-nucleus RNA-sequencing to fluorescence-activated cell sorting-selected diploid and …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
