Photomicrograph showing heart tissue taken from the biopsy of a heart attack patient. Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers have shown that after a heart attack, cardiac muscle cells produce lots of CHIP (seen as green in the photo), a protein that clears away the “trash” of misfolded, damaged proteins to improve recovery. The nucleus of each cell shows as blue. Credit: Johns Hopkins Institute of CardioScience
