A change of heart: Cardiosulfa, a small molecule that induces heart deformation during zebrafish development, has been identified by using a forward chemicalgenetic approach. Zebrafish embryos exposed to cardiosulfa have a narrow and elongated heart within an enlarged pericardial sac (see picture; heart marked with green fluorescent protein).
