Cell turnover in slowly renewing tissues in humans

Participant : Samuel Bernard.

In collaboration with Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

The year 2010 was also marked by a consolidation of long-running projects, with three offshoot papers from the collaborations of S. Bernard in Stockholm. The first is a study of metabolic risk based on fat tissue morphology [5] . The second is a study rebutting recent controversial claims that cardiac muscle cells renew at a high rate throughout life [6] , and the third one is a methodology paper for estimating turnover rates in biological systems [8] .

Keywords: cardiomyocyte renewal, ploidy, pericentriolar material 1, cardiac Troponin, Iododeoxyuridine, 14C, bomb pulse, cell turnover, Tissue maintenance, fat mass, adipocyte.
