Muscular Disorders Corrected with Stem Cells

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Jun 13, 2017 1:00:00 PM

Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Heart Institute have discovered a possible method of directing stem cells to fuse together and form functional skeletal muscle. Utilizing gene therapy, their research has provided insight into correcting disorders like muscular dystrophy, and congenital and metabolic myopathy. By identifying the genes Gm 7325 and Tmem8c, as well as their corresponding proteins, researchers have determined their paired role in directing muscle stem cells (myoblasts) in fusing and creating functional striated muscle tissue, which is responsible for movement.
