STEM CELLS

Muscling toward therapy with ERBB3 and NGFR

Nature Cell Biologyvolume 20pages67 (2018) | Download Citation

To overcome the finite supply of muscle stem cells available for cell therapy, a study now describes a strategy for obtaining an unlimited source of myogenic progenitors derived from human pluripotent cells. Two neuronal cell surface receptors facilitate the selection of a population with enhanced regenerative potential.
