Stem cell expansion and proliferation are important for cell transplantation and stem cell-mediated applications. While we have demonstrated that muscle stem cells can be obtained from adult skeletal muscle tissue, these cells represent only a small percentage of the muscle-derived cells and require in vitro expansion for successful stem cell-mediated therapies. In this study, we have examined the potential of several cytokines to stimulate stem cell growth by combining a non-exponential… CONTINUE READING
