Sorry, no etymologies found.
Muscle growth can be achieved by either an increase in muscle fibre number or an increase in the size of individual myofibres, or a combination of both.
FAPs do not generate myofibres, but enhance the rate of differentiation of primary myogenic progenitors in co-cultivation experiments.
Reciprocal transplantations between regenerating and degenerating muscles, and co-culture experiments revealed that adipogenesis of PDGFR α+ cells is strongly inhibited by the presence of satellite cell-derived myofibres.
Several studies have documented that the fibre area of type I and type IIA myofibres in the quadriceps of post-polio men are, on average, twice the control value. 22,23 3
α expression and deacetylation, decreased mitochondrial content and enzymes, decreased oxidative type I myofibres, and decreased oxidative stress-detoxifying enzymes in skeletal muscle, which were associated with insulin resistance and decreased exercise endurance.
