Researchers resolve longstanding issue of components needed to regenerate muscle

By Susan Gammon, Ph.D. February 9, 2016 Researchers at SBP have conclusively identified the protein complex that controls the genes needed to repair skeletal muscle. The discovery clears up deep-rooted conflicting data and will now help streamline efforts towards boosting stem cell-mediated muscle regeneration. Such strategies could treat muscle degenerative diseases such as muscular dystrophies,
