According to the research, statins cause spontaneous and irregular leaks of calcium from storage compartments within muscle cells. Under normal conditions, coordinated releases of calcium from these stores make the muscles contract.

Furthermore, we tested the myokine expression in primary muscle cells that were derived from Thoroughbred skeletal muscles in response to hydrogen peroxide ([H.sub.2][O.sub.2]) treatment, which mimics oxidative stress in vitro.
ISLAMABAD -- Regular exercise helps in removing toxic proteins in muscle cells that can lead to atrophy and muscle weakness, says a new study.
In this study, we investigated whether the Chinese medicine, dandelion extract, can relieve skeletal muscle cell inflammation and stimulate skeletal muscle cell activity and proliferation.
By analyzing human development, the researchers found a fetal skeletal muscle cell that is extraordinarily regenerative.
Recent evidence has demonstrated that significant levels of IL-6 is produced in and released from skeletal muscle cells per se in the absence of inflammation and stimulated by complex signalling cascades.
"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. It is hoped that this new model could be used for other projects to study diseases of muscle cells.
Urotensin II inhibition prevents smooth muscle cell proliferation and neointima formation following balloon angioplasty through apoptosis modulation and g-betagamma signaling.
The muscle cell cytoskeleton consists of proteins and structures whose primary function is to link, anchor, or tether structural components inside the cell.
