Study of stem cell phenotype and functions requires their proper isolation. Stem cells isolated from skeletal muscle are a useful tool to explore molecular pathways involved in the regulation of myogenesis. Among progenitor cells, a subset of cells, called reserve cells, has been identified, in vitro, in myogenic cell cultures. This subset of cells remains undifferentiated while the main population of progenitor cells commits to terminal myogenic differentiation. When replated, these reserve cells grow as new colonies of progenitors. At the time of differentiation, they reform both differentiated myotubes and undifferentiated reserve cells. Here, we present a protocol to obtain and further isolate reserve cells from both human and murine myogenic cell cultures, together with techniques to analyze their cell cycle status.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 August 2013.
All research outputs
of 9,342,016 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
of 7,290 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 133,813 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
of 42 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,342,016 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,290 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.9. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 133,813 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 42 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
