A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.

Skeletal muscle accounts for a large portion of body mass and is vital for locomotion and energy metabolism. Skeletal muscle has tremendous regeneration ability executed by muscle stem cells (satellite cells). Skeletal muscle regeneration is a tightly regulated multi-step process. Elucidating the mechanism of skeletal muscle regeneration and the related pathogenic changes will broaden our understanding on tissue regeneration and adult stem cell fate dynamics. 

To highlight these progresses on skeletal muscle regeneration, Cell Regeneration is currently inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on Skeletal Muscle Regeneration. 

We will especially welcome Research, Method and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • Regulation of muscle stem cell fate determination;
  • Characterization of muscle stem cell niche, regeneration microenvironment.
  • Genetic and other clinical studies of muscle related diseases.
  • Methods to generate muscle lineage cells by differentiation and transdifferentiation and the underline mechanism.
  • Metabolism and muscle regeneration

Skeletal muscle regeneration research of exceptional interest, alongside commissioned review and comment articles from experts in the field will be converged on this special issue.

The Editor-in-Chief of Cell Regeneration will review all submissions prior to peer review and may reject any of them that do not fit the scope of the journal or do not meet the journal's standards for peer review. All articles of Thematic Series will undergo full, independent peer review, in line with the journal's ethical and editorial policies, outlined in its submission guidelines. There is no guarantee of acceptance, even for commissioned or invited papers. The journal’s Editor-in-Chief has a final authority on editorial content.

  1. Skeletal muscle plays a critical role in human health. Muscle stem cells (MuSCs) serve as the major cell type contributing to muscle regeneration by directly differentiating to mature muscle cells. MuSCs usual...
