Various cells in skeletal muscle have known myogenic potential [1–4], but their physiological roles in its formation are unclear. The general consensus holds that satellite cells are required for muscle regeneration [5–7]. However, in a recent article in Development, Kostallari and colleagues demonstrated that pericytes are also indispensable for postnatal growth of skeletal muscle [8]. Using a transgenic mouse model for selective diphtheria toxin-induced depletion of NG2+ pericytes, they found… Expand
