Several studies have reported that growth and differentiation of cultured myoblasts can be facilitated by applying appropriate mechanical stimulus. However, the effects of mechanical stimulus on the characteristics of muscle fibers have not yet been fully elucidated. In this study, we gave mechanical stress to C2C12 cells, which were myoblasts derived from mice skeletal muscle. The following myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoforms were investigated in order to clarify muscle characteristics: MHC-2b… CONTINUE READING
