Previously unknown mechanism in skeletal muscle regeneration identified.


Mammalian skeletal muscles can regenerate following injury and this response is mediated by a specific type of stem cell, the satellite cell.  Significant evidence suggests that while stem cells represent an important determinant for tissue regeneration, a qualified environment is necessary to guarantee and achieve functional results. It is therefore plausible that the loss of control over these cell fate
