The research team also discovered that the protein known as p38 inhibits cardiac muscle growth in fetal rats. They wondered how they could inhibit the inhibitor so that cardiac muscle could repair itself. In 2005, these investigators reported that when they treated cardiac muscle cells with the growth factor in combination with a compound that inhibits p38, cardiac muscle cells activate a group of genes involved in cell division and finally divide (see photograph). A research group in Germany is pioneering another approach to treating heart damage.

Again, emergent properties are evident. An organism is much more than its component organ systems. Learning Objective 3 Construct a hierarchy of biological organization, including levels characteristic of individual organisms and ecological levels. Whether we study a single organism or the world of life as a whole, we can identify a hierarchy of biological organization (❚ Fig. 1-6). At every level, structure and function are precisely coordinated. One way to study a particular level is by looking at its components.
