Myoblast models of skeletal muscle hypertrophy and atrophy.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW To highlight recent breakthroughs and controversies in the use of myoblast models to uncover cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating skeletal muscle hypertrophy and atrophy. RECENT FINDINGS Myoblast cultures provide key mechanistic models of the signalling and molecular pathways potentially employed by skeletal muscle in-vivo to… (More)
