The Role of Fibro-Adipogenic Progenitors in Musculoskeletal Disease

SUMMARY Skeletal muscle consists of heterogeneous cell populations that work in concert to support musculoskeletal homeostasis and regeneration in the context of acute injury and chronic disease. In this past decade, the recently discovered sub-population of muscle resident stem cells known as fibro-adipogenic progenitors (FAPs) have been implicated in the pathogenesis and regenerative response to a number of … Continued
