By analyzing human development, the researchers found a fetal skeletal muscle cell that is extraordinarily regenerative.
Part of how we build muscle is a more natural tearing and repair process--that is the no pain, no gain portion--but if that repair doesn't occur, what you get is muscle cell death.
Babies and children may be able to increase heart muscle cell proliferation and regenerate damaged parts of their heart muscle.
The results will form the basis for developing a more accurate model in MATLAB specifically for studying muscle cells.
Urotensin II inhibition prevents smooth muscle cell proliferation and neointima formation following balloon angioplasty through apoptosis modulation and g-betagamma signaling.
22) It is hypothesized that its absence in Duchenne muscular dystrophy may result in instability of the muscle cell membrane with resultant ingress of calcium, an increase in intracellular calcium, and cell death.
The human cytomegalovirus chemokine receptor US28 mediates vascular smooth muscle cell migration.
But when it is switched off even would-be muscle cells change direction and turn into fat instead.
Because LAM affects almost exclusively women of childbearing age, physicians have thought that the hormone estrogen might be involved in the abnormal muscle cell growth that characterizes the disease, just as it is in the growth of smooth muscle in the uterus in a woman's childbearing years.
Scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine have now shown that skin cells can be coaxed to behave like muscle cells -- and muscle cells like skin cells -- solely by altering who they hang out with: the relative levels of the ingredients inside the cell.
KYOTO, Japan, September 25, 2017 -- Researchers here have constructed a synthetic molecule that can recognize and bind with a specific DNA sequence and promotes differentiation of hiPSCs into heart muscle cells.
In previous research Davis noticed that applying a toxin to a muscle cell in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster triggers homeostatic plasticity in the neuron that forms a synapse on that muscle cell: the neuron--which is called presynaptic, because it is before the synapse with the muscle cell--reliably releases more neurotransmitter, just as happens when muscle cells begin to malfunction in myasthenia gravis.
