Cardiac muscle genes linked to thyroid hormone (TH) biosynthesis

Congratulations to Dr. Geoffrey Abbott and his research team, which included Kerry Purtell, a second year Pharmacology Program graduate student, for their publication in Nature Medicine (2009 Sep 20. [Epub ahead of print]) that linked "genes previously known to be essential to the coordinated, rhythmic electrical activity of cardiac muscle" -a healthy heartbeat- to thyroid hormone (TH) biosynthesis!
