Schwann cell development in embryonic mouse nerves
TLDR
In the mouse, the transition from precursors to Schwann cells takes place 2 days earlier than in the rat, and is accompanied by the appearance of the O4 antigen and the establishment of an autocrine survival circuit. Expand
Oct‐6 (SCIP Tst‐1) is expressed in Schwann cell precursors, embryonic Schwann cells, and postnatal myelinating Schwann cells: Comparison with Oct‐1, Krox‐20, and Pax‐3
TLDR
A comparison of Oct‐6 mRNA with other Schwann cell transcription factors—namely, Oct‐1, Krox‐20, and Pax‐3—reveals that each factor exhibits strong developmental regulation and a unique expression pattern in embryonic nerves, Therefore, they are likely to play distinct regulatory roles in early development of the Schwanncell lineage.

Craniofacial muscle engineering using a 3-dimensional phosphate glass fibre construct.
TLDR
Investigation of the use of phosphate-based glass fibres as a potential scaffold material for the in vitro engineering of craniofacial skeletal muscle found a 3-dimensional mesh arrangement was the best at encouraging cell attachment and proliferation. Expand
Human adult craniofacial muscle‐derived cells: neural‐cell adhesion‐molecule (NCAM; CD56)‐expressing cells appear to contain multipotential stem cells
TLDR
The CD56+ subpopulation within adult human skeletal muscle is heterogeneous and is composed of both lineage‐committed myogenic cells and multipotent cells (the candidate MDSCs), which are able to form non‐muscle tissue such as fat and bone. Expand
The IGF‐I splice variant MGF increases progenitor cells in ALS, dystrophic, and normal muscle
TLDR
The effects of muscle splice variants of insulin‐like growth factor I (IGF‐I) on proliferation and differentiation were studied in human primary muscle cell cultures from healthy subjects as well as from muscular dystrophy and ALS patients to potentially facilitate repair and maintenance of this postmitotic tissue. Expand
Muscling in on stem cells
TLDR
It is suggested that skeletal muscle is an exciting reservoir of cells for regenerating skeletal muscle itself, as well as other cell types. Expand
αvβ3 and αvβ5 integrins and their role in muscle precursor cell adhesion
TLDR
This study has focused on expression and function of αv integrins, in cultured adult human craniofacial muscle (masseter) precursor cells and myotubes, and the predominantly fibroblastic IC (interstitial cells) population. Expand
Grouping patients for masseter muscle genotype-phenotype studies.
TLDR
The use of basic vertical or basic horizontal facial classifications may not be sufficient for genetics-based studies of facial phenotypes; therefore, it is not recommended to combine them into one single group, even though they may have a similar vertical facial phenotype. Expand
Androgens affect myogenesis in vitro and increase local IGF-1 expression.
TLDR
Both T and IGF-1 increase myogenic commitment after 7-d exposure to a differentiation medium, and the novel system described has the potential for elucidating the pattern of growth factor effects associated with androgens in skeletal muscle. Expand
