Myonuclear Domain Flexibility Challenges Rigid Assumptions on Satellite Cell Contribution to Skeletal Muscle Fiber Hypertrophy



"the critical role for activated satellite cells in response to a hypertrophic stimulus is to participate in extracellular matrix remodeling which ulitmately facilitates growth, at least in Type 2 fibers"
