A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.
Skeletal muscle accounts for a large portion of body mass and is vital for locomotion and energy metabolism. Skeletal muscle has tremendous regeneration ability executed by muscle stem cells (satellite cells). Skeletal muscle regeneration is a tightly regulated multi-step process. Elucidating the mechanism of skeletal muscle regeneration and the related pathogenic changes will broaden our understanding on tissue regeneration and adult stem cell fate dynamics.
To highlight these progresses on skeletal muscle regeneration, Cell Regeneration is currently inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on Skeletal Muscle Regeneration.
The special issue will be led by Prof. Dahai Zhu and Prof. Ping Hu. They will have advisory roles to guide the scope of the issue and provide advice on commissioned content, as well as be involved in the editorial decision making on all papers submitted.
We will especially welcome Research, Method and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Regulation of muscle stem cell fate determination;
- Characterization of muscle stem cell niche, regeneration microenvironment.
- Genetic and other clinical studies of muscle related diseases.
- Methods to generate muscle lineage cells by differentiation and transdifferentiation and the underline mechanism.
- Metabolism and muscle regeneration
Skeletal muscle regeneration research of exceptional interest, alongside commissioned review and comment articles from experts in the field will be converged on this special issue.
