Understanding how muscles work is important, but dissecting muscle fibers from humans is difficult, could an alternative option be myotubes?

Research published in Skeletal Muscle investigates this, Jennifer Levy explains more.

Tackling ischemia to treat DMD: In this publication, Nelson et al proposed to use PDE5 inhibitors to treat DMD. 

Aims and scope

Skeletal Muscle is a peer-reviewed, open access, online journal that publishes articles investigating molecular mechanisms underlying the biology of skeletal muscle. A wide range of skeletal muscle biology is included: development, metabolism, the regulation of mass and function, aging, degeneration, dystrophy and regeneration. The emphasis is on understanding adult skeletal muscle, its maintenance, and its interactions with non-muscle cell types and regulatory modulators.

Editor quotes

New Content Item

Carmen Birchmeier, co-Editor- in-Chief

"Skeletal muscle provides a platform for work on basic mechanisms used during muscle development, regeneration disease and aging. I find the similarities and differences between developing and adult muscle stem cells particularly fascinating."


Kevin P Campbell, co-Editor- in-Chief

"I am fascinated by the molecular architecture and machinery of muscle cells, and I am constantly surprised by the number of cellular mechanisms that maintain muscle function. I am encouraged by these discoveries, too, because all of these mechanisms provide us with many possibilities for attacking the muscle disease.” 

David Glass, co-Editor-in-Chief

"The goal of the journal is to understand how the skeletal muscle relevant cellular systems work, so that one might be able to improve human health and combat disease.”

 

Michael A Rudnicki, co-Editor-in-Chief

"Skeletal Muscle is an exciting journal that will provide a home for our field and facilitate better dissemination of research into the fundamental mechanisms regulating muscle development, regeneration and function."
