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.
