The endocardium is the inner lining of the heart, and interactions between the endocardium and heart muscle play essential roles during heart development. Shown here is the heart of a 24-hour-old zebrafish embryo. At this stage, the heart is a simple tube in which contractions have just begun (see Bussmann et al., e140).
