Isolation, Culture, and Differentiation of Fibro/Adipogenic Progenitors (FAPs) from Skeletal Muscle.


Fibro/Adipogenic Progenitors (FAPs) are a multipotent progenitor population resident in skeletal muscle. During development and regeneration, FAPs provide trophic support to myogenic progenitors that is required for muscle fiber maturation and specification. FAPs also represent a major cellular source of fibrosis in degenerative disease states, highlighting… (More)
