Understanding how fish grow their hearts could help humans, professor finds

A protein that enables fish to change the size of their hearts based on the temperature of the water has now been identified by researchers. Understanding how fish are able to naturally add and remove collagen could lead to the development of treatment modalities for humans that enables a more controlled way for the heart to repair itself after a heart attack.
