Novel RNA Found to Control Ability of Heart Cells to Undergo Repair

Single-cell transcriptomics has been used to examine cardiomyocyte subpopulations, leading to the identification of regulatory RNAs that could prompt cardiac cells to re-enter cell cycle and improve the heart's ability to self-repair. In this image from a mouse heart cell, nuclei (blue) and so-called Singheart RNA (red) are highlighted. [A*STAR's Genome Institute of Singapore]
