Background and Objectives Manipulating different signaling pathways via small molecules could efficiently induce cardiomyocytes from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC). However, the effect of transcription factors on the hiPSC-directed cardiomyocytes differentiation remains unclear. Transcription factor, p53 has been demonstrated indispensable for the early embryonic development and mesendodermal differentiation of embryonic stem cells (ESC). We tested the hypothesis that p53 promotes ...
