Regulatory pathways involved in cardiac development may have utility in reprogramming cardiomycytes to aid in cardiac repair. As an alternative to stem cell therapy we hypothesize that small, secreted peptides or their derivatives together with other small molecules such as microRNAs are alternatives for tissue repair stimulation. These molecules are believed to modulate the activation of resident cardiac stem/progenitor cell populations. A systematic approach to understanding the signaling mechanisms actuated by such proteins will benefit the design of novel therapeutic agents to promote cardiac repair and regeneration in adults and children.
