The embryonic development integrates different levels of organization that are activated and distributed during the events of cell specialization in tissues and organs. Over the past 14 years, our group has generated strong evidence that retinoic acid (RA) signaling is essential for the specification of cardiac progenitor cells in anterior and posterior domains, which give rise to ventr...
