Seoul, South Korea. In Int J Stem Cells, 2009
The hfMSCs were able to undergo PCR up to 20 times without displaying significant changes in morphology or expression of various stemness markers (Nanog and human telomerase reverse transcriptase [hAFP]), including germ layer markers (hNF68, alpha-cardiac actin, and hAFP).

Tokyo, Japan. In Int J Mol Med, 2003
In familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, nine gene abnormalities have been discovered in the sarcomere, i.e. the genes of beta cardiac myosin heavy chain, cardiac troponin T, alpha-tropomyosin, cardiac myosin binding protein-C, essential or regulatory myosin light chain, cardac troponin I, alpha-cardiac actin, and titin.
