Human Skeletal Muscle Progenitor Cells (Myoblasts) (DMD)

500,000 cells/vial

Catalog Number ASE-5065
Quantity > 5.0 x 105 cells/mL

Product Information
Human skeletal muscle myoblasts are derived from whole muscle that has been dissociated into single cells and purified using differential adhesion. Human skeletal muscle myoblasts are
from a single donor. These cells enable researchers to expand and study the role of myoblasts. They are positive for desmin, and most importantly, may be differentiated into myocytes as characterized by their mature muscle cell markers. They may be used for various types of in vitro, in vivo, or regenerative medicine studies in normal or diseased systems. In addition, they may be used in muscle development studies.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a recessive X-linked form of muscular dystrophy characterized by rapid progression of muscle degeneration.
Origin Human
Development Period Postnatal
Disease State Normal
