Self-renewal and expansion of single transplanted muscle stem cells
Adult muscle satellite cells have a principal role in postnatal skeletal muscle growth and regeneration. Satellite cells reside as quiescent cells underneath the basal lamina that surrounds muscleExpand

Substrate Elasticity Regulates Skeletal Muscle Stem Cell Self-Renewal in Culture
Environment Matters Stem cells isolated from muscle can be used for muscle regeneration, but only if the stem cells are fresh. Under standard cell culture conditions in the laboratory, muscle stemExpand

Reprogramming towards pluripotency requires AID-dependent DNA demethylation
Reprogramming of somatic cell nuclei to yield induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells makes possible derivation of patient-specific stem cells for regenerative medicine. However, iPS cell generation isExpand

Short Telomeres and Stem Cell Exhaustion Model Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in mdx/mTR Mice
In Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), dystrophin mutation leads to progressive lethal skeletal muscle degeneration. For unknown reasons, dystrophin deficiency does not recapitulate DMD in mice (mdx),Expand

STAT3 signaling controls satellite cell expansion and skeletal muscle repair
The progressive loss of muscle regenerative capacity with age or disease results in part from a decline in the number and function of satellite cells, the direct cellular contributors to muscleExpand

Hematopoietic contribution to skeletal muscle regeneration by myelomonocytic precursors.
Adult bone marrow-derived cells can participate in muscle regeneration after bone marrow transplantation. In recent studies a single hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) was shown to give rise to cells thatExpand

Design and properties of a Myc derivative that efficiently homodimerizes
bHLH and bHLHZip are highly conserved structural domains mediating DNA binding and specific protein-protein interactions. They are present in a family of transcription factors, acting as dimers, andExpand

Np95 is regulated by E1A during mitotic reactivation of terminally differentiated cells and is essential for S phase entry
Terminal differentiation exerts a remarkably tight control on cell proliferation. However, the oncogenic products of DNA tumor viruses, such as adenovirus E1A, can force postmitotic cells toExpand

Early forming label-retaining muscle stem cells require p27kip1 for maintenance of the primitive state
Across different niches, subsets of highly functional stem cells are maintained in a relatively dormant rather than proliferative state. Our understanding of proliferative dynamics in tissue-specificExpand

Fibroadipogenic progenitors mediate the ability of HDAC inhibitors to promote regeneration in dystrophic muscles of young, but not old Mdx mice
HDAC inhibitors (HDACi) exert beneficial effects in mdx mice, by promoting endogenous regeneration; however, the cellular determinants of HDACi activity on dystrophic muscles have not beenExpand
