Presentation Title: Proposing a contractility checkpoint defining muscle cell cycle heterogeneity
Abstract: Skeletal muscle tissues allow us to move, smile, and breathe. Our muscles get injured on a daily basis but fortunately, they are capable of self-repair. This repair capacity owes in large to muscle stem cells, residing in-between muscle fibers. Mechanical niche factors like stiffness can control muscle stem cells’ repair potential and activity, but the mechanisms for such regulation remain elusive. In this study, we propose contractility heterogeneity as a framework to study stiffness-dependent functional heterogeneity in myogenic cells.
