    Atsushi Asakura
    Ottawa Health Research Institute, Molecular Medicine Program, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
    Trends Cardiovasc Med 13:123-8. 2003
    ..This review outlines recent findings regarding different stem cell populations in skeletal muscle, and discusses their involvement in muscle regeneration...
  2. ncbi Side population cells from diverse adult tissues are capable of in vitro hematopoietic differentiation
    Atsushi Asakura
    Ottawa Health Research Institute, Molecular Medicine Program, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
    Exp Hematol 30:1339-45. 2002
    ..However, besides bone marrow and skeletal muscle, it has remained unclear whether other adult tissues also contain SP cells that are enriched for cells that exhibit hematopoietic potential...

    Jeff Ishibashi
    Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario K1N 6N5, Canada
    J Cell Biol 171:471-82. 2005
    ..Together, these results support the notion that Myf5 functions toward myoblast proliferation, whereas MyoD prepares myoblasts for efficient differentiation...
