Michiko Matsumoto, Takako Matsubara and Akinori Miki

Repairing process at the injury site in the transected muscle fibers of the mouse tibialis anterior was studied by light and electron microscopy and described in detail in this study.  The authors conclude that the repairing process is followed by the invasion of macrophages, and then the occurrence of muscle regeneration in the sequential order suggesting that there might be close chronological relationship among these events.
