Patient induced pluripotent
stem (iPS) cell-derived cardiomyocytes as models for right ventricular
from patient-derived iPS cells could help identify new treatments for right
ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy. Fibroblasts were isolated from an adult
patient, reprogrammed into iPS cells and subsequently differentiated into
cardiomyocytes. In culture, the resulting cells recapitulated an adult
cardiomyocyte phenotype, showing exaggerated lipogenesis and deficiencies in
calcium handling and greater apoptosis than control cells. Next steps include
extending the findings to additional subtypes of right ventricular
dysplasia/cardiomyopathy and using the patient-derived cells to evaluate
