    Stopping Gene-Regulating Activity of Signaling Molecule in the Heart Could Aid Heart Failure Prevention, Scientists at Temple Report

    Maladaptive growth of the heart, known as cardiac hypertrophy, is brought about in part by activation of G protein-coupled kinase 5 (GRK5), a signaling molecule found within heart cells that previously has been linked to worsened cardiac function in heart failure. Temple researchers now show for the first time in animals that keeping GRK5 out of the heart cell nucleus, the compartment that houses the cell’s genes, can block this abnormal growth process.
