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.
Cao and her colleagues have taken a big step in that direction, showing that a toxic protein destroys muscle cells inside the patients' arteries.
Unlike other cell types, such as heart cells, neurons and cells found in the gut, previous attempts to efficiently and accurately derive muscle cells from pre-cursor cells or culture have not been fruitful.
Absence of dystrophin starts a chain reaction that eventually leads to muscle cell degeneration and death.
Bianca Borchin and Tiziano Barberi from the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) at Monash University have developed a method to generate skeletal muscle cells, paving the way for future applications in regenerative medicine.
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.
