Neuregulin is a signaling protein for ErbB2/ErbB4 receptor heterodimers on the cardiac muscle cells, playing an important role in heart structure and function through inducing ErbB2/ErbB4 receptor phosphorylation and cardiomyocyte differentiation. Research on molecular level discovered that neuregulin recombinant could make disturbed myocardial cell structure into order and strengthen the connection between myocardial cells by intercalated discs re-organization. Pharmacodynamic experiments in animals showed that neuregulin (NRG1) recombinant can reduce the degree of damage on myocardial cells caused by ischemia, hypoxia and viral infection.
