Stem cell gene found to command skeletal muscle regeneration

Prox1 gene has long been known to play an important role in fetal development. Researchers have now discovered that Prox1 is essential also for skeletal muscle stem cell differentiation. Skeletal muscles are important not only for locomotion but also for the regulation of whole-body metabolism. Muscles have remarkable capacity to regenerate after injury and to adapt in response to exercise training.
