Major problems in stem cell biology revolve around defining the developmental potential of cell populations and understanding how their potential is maintained or progressively restricted. Oxygen (O(2)) is an obvious environmental factor which has received little attention in culturing skeletal muscle progenitor cells. In this work, we examine the effects of O(2) levels on the developmental potential, proliferative capacity, and phenotype of the adult skeletal muscle fiber progenitor population… CONTINUE READING
