Regeneration of muscle fibers following damage requires activation of quiescent satellite cells, their proliferation and finally their differentiation and fusion into multinucleated myotubes, which after maturation will replace the damaged fiber. The regenerative potential of human skeletal muscle will be determined, at least partly, by the proliferative(More)
In this communication, we will review the problems caused by cell-mediated gene therapy, taking skeletal muscle as a physiological model. In particular we have utilised vectors transferring telomerase under the control of retroviral promoters into human satellite cells. The set of results presented here has several implications regarding gene therapy(More)
