    Loss of adult skeletal muscle stem cells drives age-related neuromuscular junction degeneration

    Wenxuan Liu et al.
    Building on previous work (Liu et al., 2015), it is shown that depletion or rescue of adult skeletal muscle stem cells is sufficient to induce or attenuate age-associated neuromuscular junction deterioration respectively.

    Smad4 restricts differentiation to promote expansion of satellite cell derived progenitors during skeletal muscle regeneration

    Nicole D Paris et al.
    Ablation of canonical TGFβ signaling in muscle stem cells at any age is detrimental, and not beneficial, to effective skeletal muscle regeneration due to the promotion of premature fate commitment at the expense of progenitor amplification.

    Inducible depletion of adult skeletal muscle stem cells impairs the regeneration of neuromuscular junctions

    Wenxuan Liu et al.
    Skeletal muscle stem cells play important roles in the regeneration of neuromuscular junctions, and so present new targets for therapies to treat neuromuscular decline observed in the context of aging and various neuromuscular diseases.

    Epithelial magnesium transport by TRPM6 is essential for prenatal development and adult survival

    Vladimir Chubanov et al.
    Mice deficient in the TRPM6 channel suffer from impaired prenatal development, shortened lifespan, growth deficit and disturbed energy balance due to a defect in epithelial Mg2+ uptake, thus highlighting a pivotal role of TRPM6 in organismal Mg2+ homeostasis.

    SIR-2.1 integrates metabolic homeostasis with the reproductive neuromuscular excitability in early aging male Caenorhabditis elegans

    Xiaoyan Guo, L René García
    A protein called SIR-2.1 helps to protect worms from the effects of aging by regulating metabolic processes that would otherwise generate damaging reactive oxygen species.

    Muscle contraction is required to maintain the pool of muscle progenitors via YAP and NOTCH during fetal myogenesis

    Joana Esteves de Lima et al.
    A novel mechanism links mechanical signals with the molecular YAP and NOTCH signals operating during developmental myogenesis.

    Stage-specific effects of Notch activation during skeletal myogenesis

    Pengpeng Bi et al.
    While Notch activation dedifferentiates newly differentiated muscle cells; it improves the function of muscle fiber as a niche-supporting cell of muscle stem cells.

    Klf5 regulates muscle differentiation by directly targeting muscle-specific genes in cooperation with MyoD in mice

    Shinichiro Hayashi et al.
    The regulatory programs governing skeletal muscle regeneration that are controlled by Klf5 in cooperation with MyoD and Mef2 provide a potential avenue for intervention into muscle regeneration through modulation of Klf5.

    Enhanced exercise and regenerative capacity in a mouse model that violates size constraints of oxidative muscle fibres

    Saleh Omairi et al.
    The concepts that oxidative muscle fibres cannot be large and that satellite cell number is the major determinant for effective regeneration are fundamentally challenged.

    The role of Pitx2 and Pitx3 in muscle stem cells gives new insights into P38α MAP kinase and redox regulation of muscle regeneration

    Aurore L'honoré et al.
    Modulation of muscle stem cell redox state in culture both improves their amplification while maintaining a similar grafting potential as freshly isolated stem cells.
