Muscle Cell and Tissue - Novel Molecular Targets and Current Advances

Kunihiro Sakuma

Tokyo Institute of Technology

An experienced researcher focused on molecular mechanism and attenuating strategy of sarcopenia, currently working at the Institute for Liberal Arts in Tokyo Institute of Technology. He was awarded a sports science diploma in 1995 by the University of Tsukuba and then started his scientific work at the Department of Physiology, Aichi Human Service Center, focusing on the molecular mechanism of congenital muscular dystrophy and normal muscle regeneration.

About the book

In order to complete tissue regeneration, various cells (neuronal, skeletal, and smooth) interact coordinately with each other. The book Muscle Cell and Tissue - Novel Molecular Targets and Current Advances will deal with current progress and perspectives in a variety topics of skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscle, stem cells, growth, hypertrophy, atrophy, regeneration, wasting, disease, sarcopenia, biomaterials, and therapeutics. Novel applications for cell and tissue engineering including cell therapy, tissue models, and disease pathology modeling are welcomed.

This book will also discuss the recent advances of autophagy system, myokine, microRNA, non-coding RNA, exosome, and intestinal microbiota in this field. Furthermore, the molecular mechanism of hypertrophy and atrophy in muscle cell will be discussed by linking with the signal pathway of protein synthesis and degradation. The book should be useful and interesting for graduate students, teachers, physicians, and for executives as well as researchers in the field of cellular and molecular biology and regenerative medicine.

Deadline for full chapters: November 29th 2020

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: February 17th 2021

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: April 18th 2021

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

About the editor

Kunihiro Sakuma

Tokyo Institute of Technology

Professor Kunihiro Sakuma, Ph.D., currently works at the Institute for Liberal Arts in Tokyo Institute of Technology. He is a physiologist working in the field of skeletal muscle. He was awarded sports science diploma in 1995 by the University of Tsukuba and started scientific work at the Department of Physigology, Aichi Human Service Center, focusing on the molecular mechanism of congenital muscular dystrophy and normal muscle regeneration. His interest was later turned to the molecular mechanism and attenuating strategy of sarcopenia (age-related muscle atrophy). His opinion is to attenuate sarcopenia by improving autophagic defect using nutrient- and pharmaceutical-based treatments.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
