Isolation and Maintenance-Free Culture of Contractile Myotubes from Manduca sexta Embryos.Kaplan, David, 1953-
Baryshyan, Amanda L.
Skeletal muscle tissue engineering has the potential to treat tissue loss and degenerative diseases. However, these systems are also applicable for a variety of devices where actuation is needed, such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and robotics. Most current efforts to generate muscle bioactuators are focused on using mammalian cells, which require exacting conditions for survival and fu... read more
