An atlas of the heart: Proteome of the human heart mapped for the first time

A healthy heart beats about two billion times during a lifetime – thanks to the interplay of more than 10,000 proteins. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) and the German Heart Centre at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now determined which and how many proteins are present in each type of cardiac cell. In doing so, they compiled the first atlas of the healthy human heart, known as the cardiac proteome. …read more
