I'm thrilled to share our story about the cellular crosstalk in the developing heart, regulated by TGF-β from the endothelial cells. Below more details and some beautiful #zebrafish hearts ⬇️. Coincidentally, it was out @elife exactly on #WorldHeartDay! ❤️
When we mutated tgfbr1/alk5 in zebrafish, we found a very specific dilation of the cardiac outflow tract (OFT), resembling mammal aortic aneurysms...while all the other vessels and the heart looked unaffected. Occasionally, we even found ruptures and holes in the OFT!
In contrast with the literature on aneurysms and on TGF-β (focus on smooth muscle cells), we observed that the earliest defect in the increased proliferation of endothelial cells, when we did not even observe any morphological defect yet. Is it here where Alk5 plays a role?

According to @WHO, heart disease is the number 1 cause of death worldwide for both men & women of all races. Heart disease puts people at higher risk of complications from COVID-19, but the virus can also trigger heart issues.

Here's how 👇 #WorldHeartDay Image
@WHO In a study of 191 patients from Wuhan, China, 8% of hospitalised COVID-19 patients had cardiovascular disease.

35% of the patients who died from COVID-19 had a history of high blood pressure and 17% had a history of coronary heart disease #WorldHeartDay
@WHO This suggests that underlying heart disease can increase the severity of symptoms for those who catch COVID-19, resulting in a higher death rate.

There are three main risk groups these heart patients might fall in to: #WorldHeartDay Image

It's #WorldHeartDay
1. Heart Attack/Stroke
- High BP causes hardening and thickening of the arteries that can cause heart attack or stroke

2. Aneurysm
- High BP causes the blood vessels to be weak and swell up, the swellings are called "Aneurysms". If swelling burst open,it can be life-threatening
3. Heart Failure
- High BP makes pumping blood very difficult and it causes the walls of the heart to be thicker than normal making it more difficult to pump the amount of blood the body needs leading to heart failure.

4. Kidney Failure

According to American Heart Association, adult heart beats approx 100,000 times/day.
That’s about 60-100 beats/min or at least 1 beat/sec. In an avg lifetime, a human heart will beat over 2.5 billion times. (1/n)


Heart rate is affected by age & fitness level.Heart rate slows as children get older or adults get fitter. Chart frm National Institute of Health:

Newborn:70-160 bpm
1-4 yrs:80-120 bpm
5-9 yrs:75-110 bpm
10+ yrs & non-athletic adults: 60-100 bpm
Athletic adults:40 to 60bpm (2/n)
❤️ is actually a Handful
An adult heart is about size of that person’s hands clasped together in a double fist.Since people vary in size, most realistic assessment is made using ur own hands
Heart can also enlarge coz of illness & conditions-such as congestive heart failure.(3/n)

It was 2018 BC (Before Corona), he was the life of the party!

He was not called Ogene for the sake of it,a "dance machine", anytime I look at him, he reminds me of @pengmanmodel

Young, cute, successful...etc he had it all but...

#UseHeart Image
But at 25, Ogene was hypertensive and he ignored it until the day he was struck down by "Partial Stroke" on the dance floor!

While I shouted "Stroke", many shouted "Village People" but like we do, I decided to link it up


Blood Pressure (BP) is the force exerted by the blood against the body's arteries when it's flowing

BP is written as 2 numbers. The 1st one is called SYSTOLIC and it's the pressure in blood vessels when the heart beats Image
