ZFPM2 is a zinc finger protein encoded by the ZFPM2 gene, which is an important regulator of hematopoiesis and cardiogenesis in mammals (38).
However, our study has shown that PCP pathway was critical to cardiogenesis, and disruption of this pathway possibly resulted in the occurrence of cardiac developmental disorders.
Sox proteins have been shown to play essential role and undertake key functions in cell fate decisions in neurogenesis, sex determination and gliogenesis, neural crest development, skeletogenesis, cardiogenesis and angiogenesis as well as in hematopoiesis (Lefebvre et al., 2007; Wegner, 2010).
As in myogenesis, in cardiogenesis, Wnt3a activates proliferation if the [beta]-catenin pentadegradating complex is inactive because of the modification of one or more of its component such as CK1.
During cardiogenesis, that is, embryonic heart development, the prenatal heart grows by hyperplasia, before cardiomyocytes are terminally differentiated after birth, and then grows by hypertrophy [8].

recently hypothesized that hypertrabeculation may not be a failure of myocardial compaction, but rather an aberration of mammalian cardiogenesis [3].
Both miRNAs are regulators of skeleton formation, cardiogenesis, and cancer [37].

CXCL12/CXCR4 compound is vital for developmental processes, such as hematopoiesis, cardiogenesis, vascular formation, and neurogenesis as well as the maintenance of tissue stem cells [9].
