The Isl1/Ldb1 Complex Orchestrates Genome-wide Chromatin Organization to Instruct Differentiation of Multipotent Cardiac Progenitors

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Caputo et al. identify Ldb1 as a crucial regulator of cardiogenesis. Ldb1 binds the key cardiac transcription factor Isl1 and protects it from degradation. The stabilized Isl1/Ldb1 complex orchestrates a network for transcriptional regulation and coordination in three-dimensional space, driving cardiac progenitor cell differentiation and heart development.
