The capacity of adult skeletal muscle for regeneration appears to be limited, with progressive impairment in repair efficiency of injured muscles observed in chronic muscular disorders and during aging. While satellite cells, the committed adult muscle stem cells, are the main direct cell source supporting the regenerative potential of adult skeletal muscles, the characterization of the cell types and signals that constitute the functional "niche" of satellite cells is currently the object of… CONTINUE READING
