Academic Activities
1. Uezumi A, Adipose tissue boosts muscle regeneration by supplying mesenchymal stromal cells, Nat Rev Endocrinol, doi: 10.1038/s41574-023-00831-6., 2023.03, Tissue-resident stem cells have a central role in tissue regeneration, but other accessory cells are also required for efficient regeneration. A new study by Sastourné-Arrey and colleagues reveals a delicate mechanism of skeletal muscle regeneration through an unexpected type of inter-organ communication, in which stromal cells derived from adipose tissue support muscle regeneration..
