To answer the question of whether the satellite cell pool in human muscle is reduced during aging, we detected satellite cells in 30- microm-thick transverse sections under the confocal microscope by binding of M-cadherin antibody. The basal lamina was detected with laminin. Nuclei were stained with bisbenzimide or propidium iodide. Satellite cells were(More)
The aim of this study was to find out whether the frequency of satellite cells in cross-age grafts is more influenced by the age of the host or the age of the graft. Extensor digitorum longus muscles (EDL) of young and old animals were excised and cross-age transplanted. M-cadherin-stained (M-cad) satellite cells were counted within stacks of optical images(More)
