..Furthermore, these data suggest that the new fibers may be formed from myogenic cells in the interstitial spaces of skeletal muscle and may express CD34 that is distinct from satellite cells. ..

. Voluntary Exercise Positively Affects the Recovery of Long-Nerve Gap Injury Following Tube-Bridging with Human Skeletal Muscle-Derived Stem Cell Transplantation. J Clin Med. 2018;7: pubmed publisher
..These results showed that the combined therapy of tube-bridging, Sk-34 cell transplantation, and voluntary exercise is a potentially practical approach for recovery following long-gap nerve injury. ..

. Clonal differentiation of skeletal muscle-derived CD34(-)/45(-) stem cells into cardiomyocytes in vivo. Stem Cells Dev. 2010;19:503-12 pubmed publisher
..We conclude that Sk-DN cells can give rise to cardiac muscle cells clonally, and that skeletal muscle includes a practical cell source for cellular cardiomyoplasty. ..

..Therefore, the physiological role of interstitial myogenic cells is as a source for new postnatal muscle fiber formation, and multinucleated muscle fibers (cells) are potentially formed clonally. ..
