Several epidemiological investigations have shown an association between congenital heart defects and the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class of antidepressants. At first glance this association may not seem to make biological sense, especially since, in many cases, serotonin is thought of as a neurotransmitter involved in signaling between neurons. ...

Sinoatrial node is responsible for the origin of the wave of excitation, which spreads throughout the heart and orchestrates cardiac contraction via calcium-mediated excitation-contraction coupling. P wave represents the spread of excitation in the atria. It is well known that the autonomic nervous system controls the heart rate by dynamically ...

Conotruncal congenital heart defects, including defects in septation and alignment of the ventricular outlets, account for approximately a third of all congenital heart defects. Failure of the left ventricle to obtain an independent outlet results in incomplete separation of systemic and pulmonary circulation at birth. The embryonic outflow tract, a ...

Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are the most common of all birth defects, yet molecular mechanism(s) underlying highly prevalent atrial septal defects (ASDs) and ventricular septal defects (VSDs) have remained elusive. We demonstrate the indispensability of "balanced" posttranslational small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) conjugation-deconjugation pathway for normal cardiac development. Both hetero- and ...
