Abstract

Muscle satellite cells from old (> 30 months) female Long-Evans rats were isolated and grown in cell culture. Satellite cells differentiated in culture to form multinucleated myotubes that had the ability to accumulate muscle-specific proteins. Therefore, satellite cells exist in muscle through senescence and retain their myogenic potential.
