GO term:regulation of heart contraction
Synonym: regulation of cardiac contraction
GO id:GO:0008016
Definition:Any process that modulates the frequency, rate or extent of heart contraction. Heart contraction is the process in which the heart decreases in volume in a characteristic way to propel blood through the body.
Number of paths to term: 7
