General description

Human Skeletal Muscle Cells (HSkMC) are isolated from the skeletal muscle of limbs from adult or fetal donors. Human Skeletal Muscle Cells can undergo differentiation to exhibit actin and myosin myofilaments. HSkMC from Cell Applications, Inc. provide a useful model system to study many aspects of muscular function and disease.Skeletal Muscle Cells play an instrumental role in the glucose metabolism and diabetes, therefore select HSkMC lots undergo an additional set of characterization at Cell Applications, Inc. to demonstrate AMPK signaling and responsiveness to insulin stimulation.
