Melbourne: Research on frog embryos has shed new light on the process of tissue formation in the human heart, which can help understand cardiac diseases like DiGeorge syndrome.The study mapped the embryonic region that becomes the part of the heart that separates the outgoing blood in Xenopus, a genus of frog. Jean-Pierre Saint-Jeannet, a developmental biologist at Penn’s School of Veterinary Medicine, along with Young-Hoon Lee of South Korea’s Chonbuk National University were behind the finding.“In the frog, we were expecting to find something that was in between fish and higher vertebrates, but that’s not the case at all,” said Saint-Jeannet.
