Neuregulin-1 induces changes in actin filaments during ventricular maturation. Actinin staining of a mouse embryo heart reveals a striated actin pattern corresponding to mature trabecular sarcomeres (green). The magnified view shows the differences in luminosity that distinguish the more organized actin filaments of the trabecular myocardium from the less organized compact layer
