Since the middle of the last century we have progressively built up a comprehensive descriptive model of the allied mechanisms that maintain our muscles at a size and strength appropriate to the functional demands upon them and that rapidly repair damaged muscles. This volume is an assemblage of the collective experience from the pick of major research groups investigating these aspects of muscle cell biology. It provides up-to-date coverage and presents a broad range of topics.On another note, administration of TGF1 to C2C12 myogenic cell line or to the muscle tissue, initiated fibrosis (Li et al., 2004). ... In contrast, there is no evidence for increased TGF expression in the laminin alpha 2 (merosin)-deficient dy mouse, which shows progressive ... cells were first passaged to generate sufficient cells for the analyses and were not necessarily free of muscle connective tissue cells.
