Thus, it can be suggested that DNA blocking in muscle cells, combined with the occurrence of a pool of undifferentiated myogenic cells, is the common feature of the heart muscle in protostomes (the myoblastic mechanism of myogenesis), whereas the cardiomyocytes capable of DNA synthesis developed only in deuterostomians and as early as the emergence of ascidians.
