Study shows that circadian timing is a significant factor for effective muscle cell differentiation and regeneration.
September 7, 2021
Stem Cell Institute members Nobuaki Kikyo and Atsushi Asakura combined their expertise to show that muscle regeneration occurs more efficiently when the muscle was damaged within a specific time window during the 24 hour circadian cycle. This could have important implications regarding timing of surgical interventions and/or physical therapy after injury. Read the paper.
