It is generally accepted that the principal resident progenitor underlying regenerative capacity in skeletal muscle is the satellite cell. Satellite cells are present throughout life even though regenerative capacity declines with age and disease. Recently, other stem cell populations have been identified that can participate in muscle growth and… CONTINUE READING
