Cellular & Molecular Biology Letters is an international journal dedicated to the dissemination of fundamental knowledge in all areas of cellular and molecular biology, cancer cell biology, and certain aspects of biochemistry, biophysics and biotechnology.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of CMBL, we have put together this collection of the most highly cited papers published in the journal over the last 25 years. We hope you enjoy reading through the historical ‘scientific journey’ of the journal and can appreciate how much our technology and knowledge has advanced. We look forward to another 25 years!
Editorial Focus: In vitro differentiation of W8B2+ human cardiac stem cells: gene expression of ionic channels and spontaneous calcium activity
Human cardiac stem cells expressing the W8B2 marker (W8B2+ CSCs) were recently identified and proposed as a new model of multipotent CSCs capable of differentiating into smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells and immature myocytes. Nevertheless, no characterization of ion channel or calcium activity during the differentiation of these stem cells has been reported-until now.
