Luminous heart cells: Jellyfish proteins assist in heart rhythm disorder research

Cell models from stem cells serve an ever-increasing role in research of cardiac dysfunction. Researchers have succeeded in producing cells which offer new insights into properties of the heart. They installed a molecular sensor into the cells which emits light, and not only makes the cells’ electrical activity visible, but also makes it possible for the first time to quickly identify cell types….
