Abstract

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is an inherited disease characterized by a progressive replacement of myocytes with fibrofatty tissue. The replacement primarily affects the right ventricle but can progress to affect the left ventricle as well (Marcus et al., 198

Abstract

The kidneys are one of two organ systems (the other being the lungs) that had to undergo major evolutionary changes to allow vertebrates to survive in a terrestrial environment. As Homer Smith pointed out almost 60 years ago (Weder, 2007) from the perspective of evolution, the kidneys of vertebra

Abstract

The development of ectoderm-derived appendages results in a large variety of highly specialized organs such as hair follicles, mammary glands, salivary glands, and teeth. Despite varying in number, shape, and function, all these ectodermal organs develop through continuous and reciprocal epitheli
