Stem cells make muscles stronger in laboratory mice

Stem cells make muscles stronger in laboratory mice

In an article entitled, “Stem cells make muscles stronger, published online in the 20th February issue of Nature (506: 268-269), the author Bradley Olwin and his associates at the University of Colorado, Boulder, demonstrated that the protein called p38 prevents stem cells in old muscles from renewing. When the authors took muscle stem cells from old mice and treated with an appropriate drug, it led to the regeneration of damaged muscle cells.
The above investigators, Bradley Olwin and his colleagues demonstrated that a protein called p38 prevents stem cells in old muscles from renewing. When the authors took muscle stem cells from old mice and treated them with an appropriate drug, rejuvenation of the old muscle cells took place. The results reported by Bradley and his associates pave the way towards manipulating muscle stem cells in older people to promote regeneration and prevent muscle breakdown.  Furthermore, Bradley Olwin and his colleagues demonstrated that a protein called p38 prevents stem cells in old muscles from renewing.
