Expression of Cd34 and Myf5 Defines the Majority of Quiescent Adult Skeletal Muscle Satellite Cells
Skeletal muscle is one of a several adult post-mitotic tissues that retain the capacity to regenerate. This relies on a population of quiescent precursors, termed satellite cells. Here we describeExpand

IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF A NOVEL POPULATION OF MUSCLE STEM CELLS IN MICE : POTENTIAL FOR MUSCLE REGENERATION
Introduction: Recent investigations provide conclusive evidence demonstrating the existence of multiple types of pluripotent stem cells during the postnatal stage of life. These cells’ capacity forExpand

Clonal Isolation of Muscle-Derived Cells Capable of Enhancing Muscle Regeneration and Bone Healing
Several recent studies suggest the isolation of stem cells in skeletal muscle, but the functional properties of these muscle-derived stem cells is still unclear. In the present study, we report theExpand

Expression pattern of M‐cadherin in normal, denervated, and regenerating mouse muscles
Following muscle damage in adult vertebrates, myofibers can be regenerated from muscle precursor cells (satellite cells). During this process, prenatal myogenesis is recapitulated to a large extent,Expand

Weight-supported treadmill vs over-ground training for walking after acute incomplete SCI
To the Editor: Dobkin et al.1 seemingly failed to detect the superiority of training on the treadmill in acute spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. This outcome is expected considering the studyExpand

Laufband Therapy Based on‘Rules of Spinal Locomotion’is Effective in Spinal Cord Injured Persons
Rehabilitation of locomotion in spinal cord (s.c.) injured patients is unsatisfactory. Here we report the effects of a novel ‘Laufband (LB; treadmill) therapy’ based on ‘rules of spinal locomotion’Expand

Laufband locomotion with body weight support improved walking in persons with severe spinal cord injuries
After low transection of the spinal cord mammalian quadrupeds can be trained to walk on a driven surface indicating that coordinating neuronal circuits persist in the spinal cord segments caudal toExpand

Skeletal muscle cell activation by low‐energy laser irradiation: A role for the MAPK/ERK pathway
Low‐energy laser irradiation (LELI) has been shown to promote skeletal muscle regeneration in vivo and to activate skeletal muscle satellite cells, enhance their proliferation and inhibitExpand

Identification of a novel population of muscle stem cells in mice
Three populations of myogenic cells were isolated from normal mouse skeletal muscle based on their adhesion characteristics and proliferation behaviors. Although two of these populations displayedExpand

Low-energy laser irradiation affects satellite cell proliferation and differentiation in vitro.
Low-energy laser (He-Ne) irradiation was found to promote skeletal muscle regeneration in vivo. In this study, its effect on the proliferation and differentiation of satellite cells in vitro wasExpand
