New roles for RNA biology in muscle stem cell function

Antoine de Morree

Abstract Tissue regeneration depends on the timely activation of adult stem cells. In skeletal muscle, adult muscle stem cells exist in a reversible state of prolonged exit from the cell cycle, also known as quiescence. Upon injury, these cells activate and enter the cell cycle to expand and make... Read More
