New mechanism controlling proper organization of the muscle contractile units indentified
Muscle-specific protein cofilin-2 controls the length of actin filaments in muscle cells. View News Article (2014-11-10)

Mechanism for regulation of growth and differentiation of adult muscle stem cells is revealed
During muscle regeneration, which is a natural response to injury and disease, environmental cues cause adult muscle stem cells (satellite cells) to shift from dormancy to actively building new muscle tissue. View News Article (2007-12-10)

New approach to muscle regeneration restores function after traumatic injury without need for donor tissue
Loss of muscle volume is a common and often debilitating outcome of traumatic orthopedic injury, resulting in muscle weakness and suboptimal limb function.  View News Article (2015-04-16)

Don't move a muscle: Evolutionary insight into myogenesis
In a paper released online ahead of its scheduled December 15th publication date, Dr. Michael Krause (NIH) and colleagues detail the transcription network that drives muscle development in the roundworm C. elegans, and make a strong argument for an evolutionarily conserved program of myogenesis in all animals. View News Article (2006-12-07)

Human muscle-derived stem cells effective in animal models of incontinence
Human muscle-derived cells, pluripotent stem cells found in muscle, have been used to cure stress urinary incontinence in animal models, a finding which signals that these cells are prime candidates to treat the condition in adults. View News Article (2005-09-01)

Experts Solve Christmas Turkey Teaser
Experts from the University of Sheffield have identified the genetic switch that helps explain which parts of the Christmas turkey are white meat and which are dark. Professor Philip Ingham and his colleagues have worked on fish muscle cells to find a genetic switch that determines muscle fibre type in all vertebrates. The full paper will be published online by Nature on 21 December. It has long... View News Article (2003-12-19)

Dynamic sonography accurate in diagnosing muscle tears
Dynamic sonography is useful in the diagnosis, management and follow-up of muscle tears and hematomas, according to a recent study conducted by researchers from Khoula Hospital in Muscat, Oman. View News Article (2007-05-25)

Potential therapy for congenital muscular dystrophy
Current research suggests laminin, a protein that helps cells stick together, may lead to enhanced muscle repair in muscular dystrophy. View News Article (2008-12-30)

New tool enhances view of muscles
Simon Fraser University associate professor James Wakeling is adding to the arsenal of increasingly sophisticated medical imaging tools with a new signal-processing method for viewing muscle activation details that have never been seen before. View News Article (2012-01-24)

Zebrafish help identify mutant gene in rare muscle disease
Zebrafish with very weak muscles helped scientists decode the elusive genetic mutation responsible for Native American myopathy, a rare, hereditary muscle disease that afflicts Native Americans in North Carolina.  View News Article (2013-06-05)
